Green and Black's produces a line of organic, dark chocolate bars. They've also continued to expand their Fair Trade story in 2010. The company's "Espresso" bar was the choice for today, Day #6 of Chocolate and Espresso Theme Week.

Whenever I decide to group similar chocolates into a Theme Week, I'm always interested to sample the different variations on a theme. For example, this dark bar -- unlike some chocolates included in this grouping -- was a completely smooth chocolate, and was flavored with "real coffee." That is, there were not actual textural elements in the form of crunchy coffee bits/espresso beans mixed into chocolate. However, there was a strong brewed coffee flavor to the bar. Once again, life is a chocolate banquet; there are many choices available.
