Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate and Venezuela Theme Week.
Today's Trinitario Single Origin Venezuela Trincheras* 70% cacao bar** was from bean-to-bar maker, L'Amourette Chocolatier (San Francisco, CA).
This soy and gluten free, and vegan, bar had a dark chocolate aroma with dried fruit, and very faint bitter, citrus notes. And it had a relatively uniform bold dark chocolate flavor with dried fruit notes with hints of grapefruit and a slight earthiness.
*Trincheras, Venezuela, is located in a small mountain valley, and has a history of coffee and cacao production. The description printed on the packaging of today's bar explains that the name "Trincheras" came from clay trenches that were used for cacao fermentation.
**Ingredients: Trinitario cacao beans (Trincheras), Venezuelan cacao butter, Organic cane sugar
