Welcome to Day #7 of Chocolate and Peru Theme Week.
Today's organic, 70% Dark Cacao Saposoa Single Origin bar was crafted from Criollo Cacao grown in Saposoa, Peru—an area of Northern Peru in the San Martin Region.
This bar (like other Shattell Peru bars featured this week) had a fairly complex aroma and flavor profile, with dark chocolate, subtle fruit (sweet red berry, citrus), light spice, nutty, and acetic acid (vinegar) notes. The chocolate had a relatively complex finish with some herb to it. The melt and texture was smooth and fairly rich and cacao butter-y.
