Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate and Uganda Theme Week.

Today's Semuliki Forest, Uganda 70% Dark Chocolate (bar) was made by Tosier Chocolatemaker (Gipping Valley, Suffolk, U.K.).

The cacao was from the Semuliki Forest (in the Bundibugyo district in remote, western Uganda). And post-harvest, it was centrally fermented in wooden boxes and certified organic at origin. The Tosier maker(s) crafted this chocolate using a light roast profile, and ground the cacao "in (a) stone melanger with refiner."  

Aroma notes included: dark chocolate, sweet diffuse fruit, and very faint bread and butter notes.

The melt was even, and the texture had a slight graininess/astringency. 

Flavor notes included: dark chocolate cake/torte, and diffuse fruit (peaches with faint cinnamon and warm spices). A subtle dark chocolate truffle note lingered in a polite finish.

Tasting notes: "chocolate ganache and red bean paste"

Ingredients: "Cocoa beans, organic unrefined cane sugar, ethically sourced cocoa butter"

Allergen-related information: "May contain traces of nuts." "Additives free, gluten free, dairy free, palm oil free, plant-based"
