Welcome to Day #8 of Chocolate and Venezuela Theme Week.
Today's Trincheras (Venezuela) 95% (bar) was from Rozsavolgyi Csokolade (Budapest, Hungary).*
Trincheras is a cacao growing region in the Carabobo State in (northwest) Venezuela that borders on the Caribbean Sea.
The rich and appealing aroma of this bar included notes of chocolate, molasses, fruit-floral (very, very faint muffled red berry, rose geranium, vanilla and other exotic florals I couldn't quite catch) and very faint freshly baked bread.
The flavor was surprisingly mild for a 95% ultra-dark bar, with a very little bitterness, and barely detectable floral and earth notes.
Ingredients: Trincheras cocoa beans, organic cocoa butter, organic cane sugar; cacao content minimum 95%.
*Rozsavolgyi Csokolade produces a variety of beautifully designed and packaged bars, confections and drinking chocolates.
Chocolate shops in the U.S. may carry their line (usually bars/tablets); and online orders may be an option, depending on your location. Happily, I found this bar in a specialty market that carries several bean-to-bar chocolate makers' bars in San Francisco.
