Welcome to Day #5 of Chocolate and Brazil Theme Week.
Today's 65% Cacao Dark Chocolate Catongo Cacao Bahia Brazil (bar) was from Gallette Chocolates LTDA - EPP (Sao Paulo, Brazil).
This chocolate had a subtle, sequentially complex chocolate aroma with faint earth, quickly moving to refreshing oolong tea, cocoa, tart-sweet, green herb (lemon balm, sour grass), and finally light wood notes.
The melt and texture were smooth and uniform.
Flavor notes for this relatively sweet 65% bar included chocolate cake, brownie, faint fruity oolong tea, and fleeting, very light earth.
The Catongo cacao (a light-colored mutation of Forastero cacao) used to create this bar was from the State of Bahia--the largest cocoa-producing state in Brazil.
Ingredients: Cocoa mass, sugar and cocoa butter.
