About the product
We collaborated with celebrated Chef Tarik Abdullah to bring you this Middle Eastern-inspired treat. He combined this savory spice blend with 61% Peruvian dark chocolate to create a warm and aromatic bar. The Boharat spice is used throughout Middle Eastern cuisine often in lentil dishes and stews. The cacao is sourced from Rupa-Rupa, in the Upper Amazon region of Peru. The beans are carefully fermented 7 days, dried for seven days and have a medium roast. The fine Peruvian cacao bar transforms this traditionally savory flavor profile, infusing dark chocolate with spices such as cumin, black peppercorn, cinnamon and cloves for a surprisingly harmonious combination of flavors. Pairing suggestion: Enjoy Boharat Spice with a dry Riesling or spice-forward Sangiovese or with a smooth cold brew for an afternoon pick-me-up.
*And don't forget: Every purchase of jcoco helps fight hunger in the United States.*
