Welcome to Day #12 of Chocolate and Hispaniola Theme Weeks, featuring chocolates made from cacao grown in the Dominican Republic and the Republic of Haiti.
Today's Coffee 68% Haiti (bar) was made using cacao from Produits des Iles S.A. (PISA) in Haiti (and coffee from Ethiopia) that was roasted and handcrafted into bars by Triangle Roasters in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The intriguingly complex yet subtle aroma of this chocolate bar included: balanced coffee, faint leather, very faint vanilla tobacco, chocolate and faint, diffuse fruit (berry) notes.
The well-tempered bar broke with a hard snap and had a smooth, uniform texture.
Flavor notes included uniformly rich yet polite dark chocolate and, most notably, clear blueberry (and faint ripe blackberry) notes.
Overall this bar was smooth and well-executed, with enjoyable aroma and flavor notes.
Ingredients: Cacao, cane sugar, cocoa butter, coffee
