Spaniards are a passionate bunch, and nowhere is this passion more evident than in their native cuisine. From jamn to albario, olive oil to baccal, the Spanish are uncompromising in their dedication to superior produce.
For a country almost half the size of New South Wales, Spain’s influence on global food trends is nothing short of extraordinary. Right throughout history they have shaped and defined what we eat, how it’s made and the way we eat it. And chocolate is no exception…
So it comes as no surprise that Spanish couverture chocolate is amongst the best in the world, and why we at San Churro source all our chocolate from boutique artisans throughout this food obsessed nation. As is their custom, their approach to chocolate making is driven by a rich and vibrant history; time-honoured culinary traditions that have at its very heart, a true passion for excellence.
Spanish couverture chocolate has a depth of flavour that most other couverture chocolates simply don’t have. The Spanish approach is not dissimilar to wine – they prefer a flavour profile whose palate transforms in your mouth, revealing a different finish from those initially encountered. This sophistication is as much about quality as it is about taste, producing a chocolate that is not over-refined but rather allowing the true cocoa qualities to shine through.
This long-established, pure approach to chocolate making is complimented by the careful selection of beans from all over the northern hemisphere. Our Spanish chocolate manufacturer painstakingly sources cocoa beans from Ecuador, Brazil and Africa to ensure the perfect blend, aroma and texture. This extraordinary attention to detail is why our chocolate tastes so good, and why we think there can be no other choice - Viva España!
