Last Saturday ABL was at the mall and found out TCHO chocolates will be moving from their Embarcadero location to Berkeley.

Make sure to check it out and enjoy the chocolates!

Check out the TCHO flavor wheel:

TCHO focuses on the inherent flavors of cacao and chocolate, separating flavors by profile. It positions its chocolate in terms of the flavor profile rather than by cacao percentage or the origin of the beans. Cacao’s flavors derive not only from its genetics and terroir, similar to wine and coffee, but also from the way the cacao beans are fermented and dried. Such flavors can be further developed or “fine-tuned” during roasting, grinding, and conching to make the final chocolate. The cacao beans for TCHO’s four PureNotes dark chocolates were sourced and formulated to correspond to the dark chocolate flavor wheel.

TCHO’s Dark Chocolate Flavor Wheel.
  • “Chocolatey” is a single origin chocolate made from Ghanaian cacao beans. 70% cacao.
Flavor notes: Intensely fudgey; hints of roasted malt and caramel.
  • “Fruity” is a single origin chocolate (organic and fair trade) made from Peruvian cacao beans. 68% cacao. No fruits added.
Flavor notes: Bright berry notes, finishing with traces of cherry.
  • “Nutty” is a single origin chocolate (organic and fair trade) made from Ecuadoran cacao beans. 65% cacao. No nuts added.
Flavor notes: Roasted nuts with hints of coffee and toasted biscuit.
  • “Citrus” is a single origin chocolate (organic) made from Madagascar cacao beans. 67% cacao. No citrus added.
Flavor notes: Subtle citrus notes, ending with a smooth creamy finish.

TCHO’s SeriousMilk chocolates include two milk chocolates with primary flavors that correspond to the milk chocolate flavor wheel, as follows:

  • “Classic” is a creamy rich milk chocolate (organic and fair trade). 39% cacao.
Flavor notes: Rich caramel notes, with hints of butterscotch, honey and vanilla.
  • “Cacao” is a dark milk chocolate (organic and fair trade). 53% cacao.
Flavor notes: Fudgey flavor, with a smooth creamy finish.

The company’s flavor wheels are a key brand differentiator for TCHO.[2]
