Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate and India Theme Week.
Today's India Idukki 70% Organic Dark Chocolate (bar) was from Arete Fine Chocolate.
Some cacao beans call for a little added cocoa butter. However, most chocolate makers producing single origin, artisan dark bars don't go the extra step of adding single origin cocoa butter (from the same origin as the cacao beans) to their bars. David and Leslie Senk, the duo behind Arete Fine Chocolate, do this.
Today's three ingredient bar contained organic cacao, organic cane sugar and single origin organic Idukki cocoa butter
This bar had a pleasing chocolate flavor with light spice and very light molasses note and smooth, even texture.
