Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate, Dominican Republic and Haiti Theme Week.

Today's Dominican Republic, El Cibao, 72% Dark Chocolate (bar) was handcrafted by Cru Chocolate (Roseville, CA).

This 72% cacao chocolate had a creamy melt, and a pleasing dark chocolate with subtle nuts with malt, light fleeting warm spice and herb (caraway), balanced, concentrated fruit notes--and a light, well-balanced bitterness toward the end.

The cacao beans, grown in the El Cibao region in northern Dominican Republic, were fermented by Oko Caribe (a fermentery and cacao processing firm that works with farmers in the Dominican Republic).

Ingredients: Cacao beans, organic unrefined cane sugar
