What is conching?
Conching is a long process of intense mixing, stirring and aerating of heated liquid chocolate to give it its silky smooth texture and eliminate unwanted acidity and bitterness in the chocolate. Once cocoa beans have been roasted, grinded and refined to develop the base chocolate mass, this material goes into the conching process for many hours and sometimes even days. In 1879, Rodolphe Lindt invented the famous conching process, which has revolutionized the chocolate industry.
Where are the cocoa beans from?
The heart of Lindt chocolate is the finest cocoa. Knowing which of the many different origins of cocoa beans will best contribute to the distinctive Lindt taste is a skill that the Lindt Master Chocolatiers have perfected over time. They select the highest quality beans from the most renowned cocoa origins around the world: Ghana, Latin America and the Caribbean Islands (mainly Ecuador), Madagascar and Papua New Guinea. To develop the distinctive Lindt taste, Lindt chocolate also contains a high amount of cocoa flavour beans such as Criollo or Trinitario.
Once selected the Lindt Master Chocolatiers work with the local partners assuring that the farmers in the origin country properly ferment and dry the beans. This is essential to let the fine flavour develop to its full potential during the roasting process. The Lindt Master Chocolatiers blend the various beans from different origins to ensure they achieve the distinctive flavour profile specific for their chocolate creations.
