Welcome to Day #6 of 100% Chocolate Theme Week.
Today's roasted, whole cacao beans (or seeds) from Nicaragua were from Momotombo Chocolate (Managua, Nicaragua).
Momotombo founder, Carlos Mann, has done a lot for chocolate in Nicaragua. His bars and confections reflect a superior chocolate flavor that has been enriched by the country's rich, native volcanic soil.
These roasted cacao beans (or seeds) were very good. Roasted just to perfection and mellow and rich in flavor without off-flavors or bitterness.
The only challenge may be how to find these beans if you live outside of Nicaragua. You may have to do some careful online searching.
