Ahoi! Cacao sets sail: this cacao was transported from Belize to Hamburg via sailboat in cooperation with the wonderful Brigantes crew, making it a completely emission-free and sustainable journey. A single-origin chocolate with a fantastic life cycle assessment score and an 82% cacao content. The chocolate is just faintly bitter and offers a broad aroma spectrum. Its secret? Genuine Maya cacao.
The mild initial fragrance of dried plums and cherries might give a slightly reserved first impression, but a slow reveal soon offers a strong roast with barely any bitter and a surprisingly wide flavor spectrum. On the tongue, a lingering nutty praline aroma is lightly enveloped by cream and caramel, then joined by mild spice and elegant fruit note. After the initial hints of cranberry and plum, the chocolate’s fruity bouquet develops into an appealing sour cherry aroma. The finish brings the mildest note of tannin, proving its high cacao quality, thanks to our cacao farmers in Belize.
Fragrance notes: nutty notes, accents of dried fruit (plums, cherries)
Taste notes: nutty praline, cream, accents of caramel, mild notes of spice. Also fruit: hints of cranberry and plum, then intense sour cherry aroma. A mild note of tannin at the finish

Zotter produces individual chocolate for individual people who savour each moment. The diversified Zotter assortment is a reference to the biological variety. “The assortment is nothing but a small extract of what the cocoa bean with its countless aromatic components renders possible in terms of biological diversity.”
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.
