Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate and New Mexico Theme Week.

Today's Tanzania Kokoa Kamili* 75% bar was made by Chokola Bean to Bar LLC (Taos, NM).

This well-made bar had a bright, acidic/tart fruit, chocolate and light spice aroma. The flavor had concentrated fruit (stone fruit, dried pear, quince), cream, very faint sweet mineral, and true chocolate notes.

The chocolate maker's tasting notes read: "light acidity, green apple jam."

This is the second of two single origin bars this week from this New Mexico this craft chocolate maker. Chokola offers a variety of chocolates in their cozy shop, located steps away from the Taos Plaza (in downtown Taos). Yesterday's bar was a Chokola Belize Maya Mountain 70% bar.

*Kokoa Kamili is an organization that works closely with cacao farmers to ethically source cacao in the Kilombero Valley in the Morogoro Region of Tanzania, in Africa. The organization is known for producing cacao with fruity notes, and they can accommodate custom fermentation requests from artisan chocolate makers in the U.S. and elsewhere they work with.
