Modica Cold Pressed Chocolate with Pistacchio
Modica Cold Pressed Chocolate with Sicily Citrus Fruits
A must try for chocolate lovers!! A step back in time and chocolate history. The chocolate of Modica is made in small batches following an Aztec recipe brought over by the conquistadors hundreds of years ago in the town of Modica, Sicilia.
Originally known as “xocóatl”, a product that the people of Mexico obtained from cocoa beans crushed on a stone called “metate”, which released the cocoa butter and obtain a grainy paste.
The process was taught to locals in Modica, without passing to the industrial stage. In cold processing, the cocoa does not pass through the phase of conching: the cocoa paste is processed at 40° with added granulated sugar; failing to melt or blend, the sugar gives the chocolate of Modica the characteristic “rough” appearance of the grainy texture. It is made today the same way it has been made for centuries. Enjoy a unique and decadent chocolate experience.
