Chocolate of the Day:
1 serving
The Grenada Chocolate Company
Organic Cocoa Powder
Very Good

Cost: $9.00 total package
Purchased from: The Chocolate Garage, in Palo Alto, CA

The Grenada Chocolate Company's Organic Cocoa Powder was an attractive, reddish shade of brown, and had a slightly bitter taste. Although when I added hot water, milk, sugar, spices, there was only a robust, pleasing chocolate undertaste, and no bitter flavor. Spices added: hand-grated nutmeg; allspice and cinnamon.

For those who have a bit more time: I also tried pouring the cocoa, milk and spice mixture through an unbleached paper drip filter like that used for coffee, to get rid of any grittiness from powder or spices, and that seemed to work well without removing much flavor.

Today was Day #2 of Drinking Chocolate/Chocolate Beverages Theme Week.
