Lindt Couverture is the Lindt baking chocolate that is used by professionals such as Chocolatiers and Pâtissiers. The word ‘Couverture’ comes from the French word ‘couvert’ which means ‘covering’. Lindt Couverture chocolate is made to have optimal flowing qualities so the chocolate coats the inside of moulds, cakes and Pralinés with a thin and even coat of chocolate. The Lindt range of Couverture is called Piccoli (little pieces in Italian) and is the perfect chocolate for all your Lindt chocolatey baking needs. Lindt EXCELLENCE also is a great option to flavour recipes with a decadent chocolate taste but if you like to use the chocolate that the professionals use, our Couverture is a true chocolate delight
Our Four Cocoa Bean Varieties
Criollo – a highly prized cocoa bean harvested only by luxury chocolate producers. This rare bean accounts for just a fraction of the world’s cocoa harvest and offers a beautiful aromatic flavour to our chocolate.
Trinitario – a hybrid of the aromatic Criollo and earthy Forastero cocoa varieties – is named after Trinidad, its place of origin. Trinitario adds a fine, full-bodied, flavour to our chocolate.
Forastero – a high-yielding, fast-growing, variety that is the most prevalent cocoa variety – makes up for around 90% of the world’s cocoa. Forastero adds a robust, earthy undertone to our chocolate.
Nacional – an incredibly rare genetic blend of Forastero, Criollo and Trinitario cocoa (at Lindt we have created our own unique blend). This Ecuadorian variety adds rich, floral notes to our chocolate.
