Welcome to Day #9 of Chocolate and Maya Empire Theme Week.
Today's Ka'kow Homemade Chocolate dark (oscura) 99% Guatemalan Organic Cacao (bar) was from Chocolate Real (Sumpango Sacatepequez, Guatemala). Chocolate Real (which also translates into Royal Chocolate in English) started making chocolate in Guatemala in 2013.
This dark chocolate had a strong, pleasant, "sweet" hot chocolate aroma. A high percent of cocoa butter (50%) enabled a creamy smooth melt and texture. The flavor had strong true, bold dark chocolate flavor with balanced bitterness (and at 99% cacao total) with almost no sugar or bright fruit sweetness.
