WHAT CONSTITUTES A HIGH CALIBER CHOCOLATE?

There are several tell-tale signs that denote a premium artisan chocolate: 1. The scent. It smells like chocolate. 2. The shell is very thin. Commercial chocolates (factory made) generally have a thick shell as it is faster/ easier to achieve. 3. There is a 'snap' when broken. A good bark or bar will make that distinctive sound and feel when you break off a piece. 4. Dark chocolate when well tempered is shiny or glossy. 5. It's not overly sweet. Mass-produced chocolates contain a lot of sugar for the simple reason that it is a preservative and elongates the shelf life of the chocolate. 6. The texture is smooth. Aside from hand-puréed fillings, a ganache or truffle should be silky smooth. 7. The flavor is complex. Whether subtle or strong, it should have different notes like a fine wine. You may start tasting one note and end with another. INFO@LESAINT-CHOCOLATE.COM

Fine flavour cacao (Criollo and Trinitario) The exclusive, aromatic Criollo and Trinitario cacao beans represent less than 10 % of all cacao beans grown. It is almost impossible to find pure Criollo, as this sort has been crossed with the resistent Forastero to aid in the battle against disease. As a result, a hybrid of Criollo and Forastero, called Trinitario, has been cultivated on the island of Trinidad since the 18th century. INFO@LESAINT-CHOCOLATE.COM

Le CHOCOLATIER Stéphane Lesaint has lived in the US for almost 30 years yet still looks and sounds as if he was plucked off a Paris corner and dropped in America by chance. He came to New York from Paris for a vacation, speaking no English and fully intending to go back to his life in France: a couturier in the Paris fashion industry. Instead he got married and never left. Today his virtual chocolate boutique, LeSaint French Chocolate, is very much like him: really French and located rather unexpectedly in America (Bucks County PA to be precise). His foundation in design is apparent in his brand of sleek artisan, hand-crafted chocolate. A graduate of the French Pastry School in Chicago, Lesaint was trained by MOF’s -Meilleurs Ouvriers de France including Jacquy Pfeiffer of the film The Kings of Pastry. He is a 2019 International Chocolate Awards Silver Medal Winner and has been honing his craft for over a decade. Stéphane has a tip for tasting chocolate: try it at room temperature first thing in the morning when your palette is 'new' after a night's rest. The flavor will wake you right up delightfully!

This applies to locations where climate cooperates in the fall & winter months 4. WE ONLY OVERNIGHT SHIP TO WARM CLIMATES + ICE. Sorry but like we said, chocolate can melt. 5. PLAN AHEAD.
