Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate and Peru Theme Week. You may notice that today's bar was the third chocolate this week from Fruition Chocolate (Shokan, NY).
Fruition Chocolate Works and Confectionery, is a bean-to-bar operation. They roast and stone grind organic and fairly traded cacao beans and make their chocolate from "scratch" vs. buying pre-made chocolate as most chocolatiers do. Founder Bryan Graham has specialized in single origin chocolate from Peru.
This 70% cacao bar was smooth, with a rich acidic bite and array of flavor notes. The tasting notes on the bar's label read:
"A roller coaster of flavors, bright and assertive with a lengthy dark roast finish."
I received this Fruition Chocolate bar (1 of 3) as part of a subscription offered through Standard Cocoa, a company that will send you new craft chocolate bars each month. What's not to like about receiving a box of good chocolate on a regular basis?
