Couverture suitable for India climate
Posted in: Tasting Notes
Hi, I think that there is no such thing as chocolate that is weather (heat) resistant. Couverture chocolate is a quality chocolate which is high in cacao butter. Cacao butter melts just under body temperature. That is one of it's characteristics. This characteristic ensures a superior mouth feel to the chocolate...
So this is why couverture is superior to compound chocolate (often with palm oil, with a slightly higher melting point)
If well tempered the high cacao butter contents, gives the chocolate a nice sheen and snap.
If you know this than a weather proof couverture chocolate sounds like a contradiction.
