Slitti Gran Bouquet Nero - 100 gr - Italy

With Andrea Slitti's family history, it is no wonder that he can create something magical from the combination of coffee and chocolate. His Caffe Nero Dark Chocolate bar blends his incomparable 60% Gran Cacao Dark Chocolate with bits of perfectly roasted coffee beans. The result is one of the most flavorful coffee and chocolate combinations we've ever tasted, and oh, do they work well together.

andrea-slitti-gran-bouquet-caffee-nero-chocolate About the Producer
In 1969 Luciano Slitti opened Caffe Slitti, a coffee roasting shop, on a provincial highway outside the village of Monsummano Terme, with son Daniele taking care of the roasting. Monsummano Terme lies in northern Tuscany between Lucca and Pistoia, not far from Florence. Their obvious mastery of the art of buying, blending and roasting beans resulted in quite a following for the roasting house.

Young Andrea, Luciano's second son, was often employed to deliver the coffee to regular customers throughout the area, mainly cafes, pasticcerias, and confectioners. Coffee and chocolate are great companions and it was during this time that Andrea came under the spell of chocolate-making.

In 1986 the roasting house moved to a larger space and Andrea's father added a cafe. Extra space allowed Andrea to set up a workspace of his own, for making chocolate.

Thanks to his passion for the careful selection and roasting of cocoa beans, and his completely homemade production methods, Andrea has gained a worldwide reputation for his chocolate. Andrea Slitti's chocolate-making ability has accustomed professionals and chocolate fanciers alike to delicious and beautiful creations.

His extra bitter bars are the ultimate chocolate-without-distractions experience. He also creates chocolates filled with classic and innovative creams and topped with pale yellow decals.

Since 1993, the self-taught Andrea has been winning international awards for his chocolate creations - Gold Medals and First Place prizes, that is. Chantal Coady's "The Chocolate Companion" ranks Andrea among the best chocolate handcrafters in the world.

Choosing his cocoa beans is just the beginning; it's the roasting and blending that make Andrea Slitti the master of dark, bittersweet chocolate, as his Gran Cacao bars demonstrate. With 60%, 73%, 82%, 90% and 100% cocoa content respectively, these bars will be the benchmark for the discriminating chocolate aficionado and the chocoholic alike.
