Welcome to Day #15 of Chocolate and Flowers Theme Week.
Today's Dark Chocolate Organic Coconut Hibiscus 72% bar was from Chuao* Chocolatier (Carlsbad, CA).
The organic dark chocolate was crunchy, sweet and chocolatey with coconut and very light tangy floral and faintly earthy flavors (organic hibiscus flowers). This bar was quite sweet (sweetened coconut, cane sugar, maple sugar) for a 70%+ chocolate bar.
*Chuao (pronounced Chew-WOW') Chocolatier was founded over 17 years ago by two Venezuelan brothers. One, Michael Antonorsi, was trained as a Master Chef. Both brothers recall the strong tradition of chocolate from their home country. (Relatives had been involved in cacao farming.) And the company name (Chuao) is a tribute to a village (Chuao) established in the 1500s, that grew to become a famous cacao producing region in Venezuela.
