Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate, Dominican Republic and Haiti Theme Week.
Today's Dominican Republic 70% (bar) was from Armstrong Chocolate Company (Chico, CA).
Armstrong founder and chief chocolate maker, Matthew Armstrong, made this bar with cacao beans from Oko Caribe* (a fermentery founded by two cacao professionals, Gualberto Torrejon and Adriano Rodriguez in 2006, in the Dominican Republic).
The bar had a dark chocolate with light spice and concentrated fruit aroma, smooth melt and texture, true chocolate flavor with bright fruit (cherry, raspberry), one very fleeting light earth note, and a subtle, balanced bittersweet finish.
Ingredients: organic cacao, organic cane sugar, organic cocoa butter
