Welcome to Day #5 of Chocolate and Honduras Theme Week.
Today's Honduras 72% Dark Chocolate (bar) was made by Cru Chocolate (Roseville, CA).
This Honduras chocolate had an aroma with a pleasing, smooth dark chocolate aroma with a warm sugar note.
The dark chocolate was well-tempered with a smooth melt and texture.
It also had smooth, uniform dark chocolate flavor with a naturally sweet, very light molasses, and diffuse fruit (red berry, citrus) tangy sweetness.
The cacao used to make this bar was sourced from Fundacion Hondurena de Investigacion Agricola (FHIA) in La Masica in northern Honduras. (Honduras is divided into 18 departments. La Masica is a town/municipality in the department of Atlantida, inland (south of) the Caribbean/Atlantic coast.)
The maker's description read as follows: "As the Scarlet Macaw (pictured on packaging) reveals its multicolor and iridescent plumage, so does this bar take flight voicing bright citrus crescendos that gracefully land into a forest of nuanced coffee notes."
Ingredients: cacao beans, unrefined organic cane sugar
