Welcome to Day #9 of Chocolate and Ecuador Theme Week.
Today's Ecuador 71% Dark Origin Chocolate (bar) was from Libeert s.a. - Belgian Chocolate Creators (Comines, Belgium).
Belgian chocolates have been made from cacao blends (no origin listed), and/or been made with West African cacao (where most of the world's supply is currently grown).
However, a larger number of Belgian chocolate bars are now available made with cacao from other/single origins, including Central and South America.
This thin bar had a slightly buttery melt, and cocoa/true chocolate, light floral, fruit, earth and nut notes. A balanced, subtle bouquet of flavors.
The maker's description read: "Roasted cocoa with...hints of humus and flowers."
