Welcome to Day #8 of Chocolate and Nicaragua Theme Week, featuring another attractively packaged artisan chocolate bar.
Today's 70% Nicaragua bar was made by Zak's Chocolate, a craft chocolate and confection maker with a small factory and retail space in Scottsdale, AZ.
This single origin bar had a pleasing complex aroma with balanced green, fruit, bitter, chocolate, earth and light spice notes. The flavor was smooth with medium fruit acidity and a very faint roasted coffee note.
Ingredients: "Nicaragua Matagalpa cacao, organic cane sugar, Nicaragua Matagalpa cacao butter pressed in house" (Matagalpa is a relatively mountainous cacao-, coffee- and tobacco-growing region (department) in Nicaragua.)
