Batang Kali is located on the West-facing slope of the Malaysian main range. These cocoa trees were planted in the 80’s by the Penang Plantation Co and were previously abandoned for years before they were rehabilitated in 2017. After a year of following strict farming practices, Chocolate Concierge was able to harvest. Older cocoa trees expressed more terroir due to their established roots, making unusual chocolate. However, most trees needed extensive and prolonged rehabilitation, Chocolate Concierge had to limit their operations here for the time being. This means that this growth will be under nature's care until they revisit in the future. Chocolate profile is terroir-centric, exhibiting prominent minerality, jaggery, tropical fruits, and tobacco.
