Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate and Brazil Theme Week.

Today's M. Libanio "Bresil" 75% cacao bar was made by Chocolat Bonnat (France). Chief chocolate maker, Stephane Bonnat, is the chief bean-to-bar maker who carefully selects cacao beans to make a variety of creamy and flavorful single origin bars.

I was able to purchase two of Bonnat single origin Brazil bars (online) from Chocosphere (Tualatin, OR). Today's bar was the second of the two. (See yesterday's post for information on Bonnat's Vale do Juliana 75% bar.)

M. Libanio is the name of a plantation located in a coastal area of the state of Bahia, in Eastern Brazil.

Today's bar had faint coffee, spice and fruit aromas, creamy smooth texture, and a rich (complex but smooth) dark flavor.
