Today was Day #5 of Chocolate and Single Origin Theme Week.
It's hard to beat Trader Joe's for interesting single origin chocolate bars, offered at a reasonable price. What a great South American chocolate geography lesson this week has been. After exploring chocolates from Ecuador for the past few days, I moved over to Columbia today. This Trader Joe's 85% cacao dark bar -- advertised as "smooth and fruity" (with a light, pleasant root beer-like note at the beginning I'd add) -- came from the Tumaco (Pacific Coastal) Region of Columbia.
