Welcome to Day #11 of Chocolate, Dominican Republic and Haiti Theme Weeks.

Today's Dominican Republic (D.R.), Finca Elvesia, Coffee and Sea Salt, 65% Dark Chocolate small bar was from Definite Chocolate, S.R.L. (Santa Domingo, Dominican Republic). 

The company's chocolates highlight flavors from different cacao-growing regions/farms in the D.R.; and they offer both full-sized and small bars. (I've been sampling the latter this week.)

This dark chocolate coffee and sea salt small bar had a creamy texture--and an aroma with notes that were right on the nose: dark chocolate, coffee, savory salt, faint roasted nut and slightly earthy notes.

The coffee and salt flavor inclusions (and slight earthiness) helped balance the rich, sugar/sweet, dried fruit (date) notes. It was perfect as a breakfast bar and was small enough to be a portable, high-end snack or small dessert.

Tasting notes listed for this small bar read as follows: "...notes of dates, caramel and nuts."

Ingredients: Organic cacao beans, cacao butter, cane sugar, coffee beans, sea salt.
