Today was Day #2 of Chocolate and Dominican Republic Theme Week.
This agreeable dark chocolate (73% cacao) Dominican (Republic) bar from Cello Chocolate (Nevada City, CA) was peppered with crunchy little cacao nibs, pressed onto the back of the bar.
Cello Chocolate founders/owners are chocolate-maker Ned Russell and Debi Russell. They select single origin beans for their flavor, and purchase Certified Fair Trade and Organic beans to make their single origin bars. (Ned and Debi each bring valuable and complementary skills to the business - he used to work at Ghirardelli, and she brings sales and marketing experience. And, yes, Ned also plays the cello.)
