Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate and Ghana Theme Week.
Today's Dark Milk Chocolate 58% Cacao Ghana (bar) was made, from bean-to-bar, by Moka Origins (Honesdale, PA). The company specializes in single origin, small batch chocolates (and coffees).
The aroma of this chocolate was one of subtle, sweet dark milk chocolate, with a very faint clean mineral note.
The well-tempered bar broke with a snap, and it had a smooth melt and creamy texture.
The flavor had notes of slightly tart (faint, diffuse fruit) and milk chocolate flavor with faint molasses spice notes. The Ghana-grown cacao used to make this bar was a blend of Amelonado and Trinitario.
This well-executed bar was refreshingly flavorful and relatively complex for a milk chocolate bar.
