Welcome to Day #10 of Chocolate and India Theme Week, and Day #2 of EFGHI Theme Week, where words and phrases beginning with the letters E, F, G, H and I are highlighted.
Today's single origin 68% Mork (Dark Chocolate) India (bar) was hand-crafted at Fjak Chocolate (at their factory in Hardangerfjord, Norway).
The two founding partners, Igurtxane Concellon and Siv Hereid, make single origin craft chocolate offerings, like today's India bar--as well as chocolates with Norway-inspired flavor inclusions (e.g., reindeer moss and lingonberry).
The cacao used to make this single origin bar was grown in the Idukki region, in the State of Kerala in southern India.
This chocolate had a relatively sweet, mild, dark chocolate aroma and a bright, sweet-tart fruit (tart cherry, tart red berry, candied orange peel) acidity, and was low in bitterness. It also had very slight spice and malt notes.
Ingredients: Cocoa beans, cane sugar and cocoa butter
