Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate and Peru Theme Week.
Today's Bitter 70% cacao - Cacao San Rafael bar was from Shattell Chocolate Organico (Lima, Peru).
This made in-country (grown and made in Peru) organic bar had a sweet dark aroma with hints of faint spice, herb and earth—and an
acetic acid (light fruit vinegar) flavor note that also has been present with other Shattell single region Peru bars featured this week.
*San Rafael, from what I could tell from some brief research, is located near two other cacao growing regions (Cusco and Arequipa) in southeastern Peru.
