Welcome to Day #9 of Chocolate and Brazil Theme Week.

Today's Bresil dark chocolate bar was made in France by Chapon Chocolatier (Chelles, France).

This complex dark chocolate (no percentage listed) had light roasted coffee, lightly fermented fruit (raisin, bright dried cherry plum) and true dark chocolate, and very faint coconut* and molasses aroma and flavor notes.

The texture and melt were smooth and pleasing, and the finish was clean and light.

The choices made in creating this bar included Torrefaction Longue (a long drying and roasting time) and Conchage Court (shorter conching time). A shorter conching time can preserve more flavor(s).

*This chocolate contained no coconut. Ingredients: Brazil cocoa mass, cocoa butter, cane sugar, and fleur de sel Guerande (French sea salt).
