Very exciting news! Australia now has four bean to bar chocolate makers (I think I am counting correctly). Haigh's, Nui, Zokoko and now Daintree Estates (www.daintreeestates.com). Check out their comprehensive website for more info, the shop is not up and running yet but soon I am told.
I have had the good fortune to have worked with some of the cocoa from Mango Park run by Don and the chocolate I have made from it is amazing! The flavour notes are very unusual, I get liquorice and pineapple very strongly in this chocolate.
Well done guys!!
If you google "Cicada Chocolate" the website should come up.
Actually Daintree Estates is not just a bean to bar chocolate maker, but the only pod to plate chocolate maker in Australia. ;^)
Our full size blocks are not far away now. Product launch is expected in September or early October.
