Today was Day #7 of Chocolate and Venezuela Theme Week.
Ocumare is another famous cacao-growing area, in the state of Aragua (one of 23 states in the Venezuela).
This Ocumare 70% bar from Franceschi Chocolate (Venezuela) had a light touch of bitterness along with fruit (citrus) notes, but was still an enjoyable, well balanced, single origin bar.
