Product Description

Flavor: Bittersweet Dark Chocolate (70% Cacao)

Product Description

Our 70% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate is a favorite for both eating and baking. With bright fruitiness and a long, smooth finish, it embodies everything we love about cacao. The term 'Couverture' translates to 'covering' and refers to chocolate that is suitable for tempering or enrobing in its finished use. While all Scharffen Berger chocolate can be used as 'couverture', the slabs are sized to facilitate candymaking or decorative shaving. They are scored into five equal sections.

Cacao Nibs Pouch (Roasted, Hulled and Crushed Cacao Beans)

Cacao Nibs are perfectly roasted cocoa beans separated from their husks and broken into small bits. They are the essence of chocolate. Nibs add crunchiness and subtle chocolate flavor to baked goods and savory dishes. They make a great substitute for roasted nuts or chocolate chips, without added sweetness.

Sweetened Cocoa Powder

With Scharffen Berger Sweetened Natural Cocoa Powder, it is easy to make delicious hot cocoa and chocolate milk. The only thing we have added to our exceptional cocoa powder is pure cane sugar — no powdered milk or the alkali used in Dutch-process cocoa.

Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

Developed for baking and beverages, our Natural Cocoa Powder is made from perfectly roasted and well-fermented beans.

Our vintage melangeur's massive granite rollers slowly and gently crush the cacao nib into chocolate liquor, while preserving the complex flavors of the cacao.

An American Artisan: The Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker Story

America's first contemporary artisan chocolate manufacturer, SCHARFFEN BERGER Chocolate Maker set out to craft the richest, most flavorful chocolate by sourcing the best cacao in the world and blending it in small batches using vintage equipment.

SCHARFFEN BERGER Chocolate Maker was founded in 1997 by chocolate connoisseur Robert Steinberg and winemaker John Scharffenberger. The pair tested multiple combinations before perfecting a unique blend that highlighted the true flavor of cacao instead of masking it with sugar and other flavors. The result is an array of truly distinctive chocolates with balance and complexity — not unlike those found in exceptional wines.

As the first American "bean-to-bar" chocolate manufacturer in over 50 years, SCHARFFEN BERGER Chocolate Maker led this country's contemporary resurgence in artisan chocolate-making. It was also the first chocolate maker to label their chocolate with the percentage of cacao inside.

Stack of Scharffenberger chocolate

Today, SCHARFFEN BERGER Chocolate Maker travels the world to source the finest cacao. We select the best beans from small sustainable farms in fabled cacao-producing countries: Madagascar, Indonesia, Trinidad, Venezuela, Brazil, Guatemala, Vietnam, Grenada, Paupua New Guinea, Bali, Ghana and Peru. Of the more than 150 samples we taste each year, only a select few are chosen to become SCHARFFEN BERGER Chocolate. Beans from each region are picked for their unique flavor characteristics, and our roasting parameters are specially developed for each origin to bring out the best in each flavor. We blend these freshly roasted beans to produce our signature flavors, balanced and complex, highlighting the true, rich flavors of cacao.

This artisan process, honed with a wine-maker's attention to craftsmanship, results in the richest, most flavorful chocolate perfect for your favorite cakes, cookies, desserts and savory recipes.

Flavor Name: Bittersweet Dark Chocolate (70% Cacao) Verified Purchase
Best chocolate ever. Quality is right there with Callebut and Valhrona and it's a USA company out in California. Great price and amazing packing like it was a chocolate baby being delivered. It tempers beautifully and has caramel overtones.
