Welcome to Day #4 of South American Chocolate Weeks. This week we're visiting Brazil.
Today's Brazil 70% Dark bar was hand-crafted by Fresh Coast Chocolate Co. (Traverse City, MI).
The cocoa beans used to make this bar were sourced from Fazenda Camboa, Bahia, Brazil.
The aroma was a blend of tropical fruit bubble gum and raisin. The tasting notes for this bar read: Tropical fruit, jasmine, espresso brownie—a truly accurate description. It was also a wild, somewhat improbable, but ultimately successful ride. I happily went back for more. Tart dried fruit (cherry) and jasmine floral notes lingered.
