Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate and Brazil Theme Week.
Today's Trinitarios Inclusao 70% Dark with Orange Zest bar from Baiani Chocolates (Bahia, Brazil) was the fourth of four bars featured this week from Baiani.
This inclusion (flavored) dark bar was suffused with a touch of rich, balanced natural orange flavor. The base chocolate had a smooth, relatively bold, dark flavor—not unlike the company's 70% Bold Roast bar (featured yesterday).
The craft chocolate makers at Baiani source their cacao from a family farm (fazenda Santa Rita) in Vale Potumuju, Bahia, Brazil. Bahia is the largest cacao producing state in Brazil, and is located on the Atlantic coast.
