This smooth, dark bar with Caribbean origins from French chocolatier Michel Cluizel possessed a richness beyond its 67% cacao, which is to say that today I would have pegged it as a 72% bar if left to guess on my own.

Thank you to Sunita at The Chocolate Garage for featuring this bar this morning, as part of a blind taste test, across the street from the downtown Palo Alto Farmers Market.
