Valrhona Sakanti Bali 68% single origin chocolate, Burnt Candlenut Anglaise, Kopi Luwak Ice Cream
Valrhona Sakanti Bali Single Origin 68% Chocolate: Valrhona works closely with KSS Kerta Samaya Somaniya a local cooperative which gathers over 400 cocoa farmers in the Jembrana area of Tabanan. A region located in the west part of Bali known for cocoa, coffee, bananas and of course rice.
Due to the tropical fruits which the cocoa beans are grown amongst, the end result is a grand cru classification with tropical fruit acidity while highlighting well rounded notes of chocolate with a mild bitterness.
Candlenut: Also called kemiri nut is indigenous to Indonesia. It is commonly used in foods to thicken and balance the flavours in bumbu a term used for a mixture of spices. It is commonly grown all over Indonesia; especially in the West and East areas of Nusa Tenggara. It is grown amongst many other crops such as coffee and fruit trees. Candlenut trees can survive extreme dry season weather which makes it a valuable non timbering crop.
Kopi Luwak: Is a coffee produced mainly in Bali, Java, Sumatra and Sulawesi Indonesia.

Because the civets only choose the ripest cherries to eat and the natural acidity reducing properties of the cherries as a result of digesting and passing. Kopi Luwak is considered one of the most rare and expensive coffees in the world. Reaching upwards of $700 USD per kilo.
