Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate and Peru Theme Week.
Today's Bitter 70% cacao - Cacao Tarapoto Maras Pink Salt bar was from Shattell Chocolate Organico, an "artisan chocolate factory in Lima, Peru."
This 70% cacao bar was made from Peruvian cacao grown in Tarapoto (San Martin Region), and it had brown sugar, green, dried fruit, deep smooth earth and a slight fruit vinegar/acetic acid aroma notes (that dissipated after the package was open for awhile).
A faint constellation of sea salt crystals were pressed into back of the dark bar; and the salt was nicely balanced and subtle.
*Maras pink salt is typically excavated near Cusco, in southern Peru.
