A single origin chocolate with a fruity note, made with fine flavor cocoa from Para, where Julia Zotter spent an entire summer with a family of cocoa farmers, working with them and learning much of what there is to learn about cocoa cultivation. She toiled from morning to night in the middle of the rain forest, in order to learn the perfect fermentation method, which allows the cocoa’s full aroma to blossom.
The delicious fragrance emanating from our new Brazil chocolate will immediately delight you. Its many-layered bouquet consisting of gingerbread, dominoes and dried red fruit, in particular sweet cherries, will definitely get you in a Christmas mood. And as soon as you’ve tasted a piece, you will have an even more impressive flavor experience of its wintery accents and extraordinary aroma spectrum showing astonishing depth. Right from the start, you will detect sweet, caramelized almonds on the palate, accompanied by a mild touch of gingerbread. Subsequently, light floral notes will develop, which work harmoniously with hints of toffee and cream, presenting with a floral marzipan aroma. Its fruity finish culminates in expressive but perfectly balanced notes of cherry and red berries as well as light citrus accents. In its mild almond finish, the fruity notes, especially lemon and tonic, linger for a while due to its sophisticated aroma intensity.

The inventor Josef Zotter has constantly invested in his products. He has been involved in fair trade since 2004, in 2005 his company converted to organic and in 2006 he opened his own Chocolate Factory. For this reason he is throughout Europe the only manufacturer who produces chocolates starting from the bean (bean-to-bar) exclusively in organic* and fair quality!
Josef Zotter has succeeded in transforming the world of chocolates. With the hand-scooped chocolates the creative chocolate maker from Riegersburg has managed to upset our familiar view of the world of chocolate. Bacon Bits in chocolate, Pumpkin Seeds with Marzipan and Apples and Carrots with Ginger surrounded by chocolate. The chocolate revolution started: novel flavour combinations, a new format, art as packaging and the transformation of delicacies into green food. In 2012 the hand-scooped chocolates were celebrating their 20th anniversary. More than 20 years of chocolate history filled with a tremendous amount of creations, crazy ideas and the rebellion against the mainstream.
Bean-to-bar – from the bean to the chocolate Since the opening of the Chocolate Factory Josef Zotter has ranked among the few quality chocolate makers around the world whose chocolate production processes are located under the same roof: From the roasting of the cocoa beans via the rolling up to the finishing touches in the conching plant everything is carried out with a high degree of sensitivity. In this way Zotter clearly positions himself against standardized mass production and the concentration of the chocolate market. In his Chocolate Factory there is no run-of-the-mill processing. The entire manufacturing process becomes transparent and tangible for visitors in the Chocolate Theatre. Zotter even was invited to the renowned Harvard University and his company is the only Austrian company included as part of the students’ curriculum as a case study.
