Welcome to Day #8 of Chocolate and Peru Theme Week.
Today's Organic Peruvian Espresso (bar) was from Casa de Chocolates (Berkeley, CA). The company specializes in high-quality, small batch chocolates--many of them with a Meso-American flavor or twist/connection.
Aroma notes for this small bar included: sweet, almost floral, dark chocolate and coffee.
The texture was creamy, almost velvety, smooth dark chocolate with crunchy bits of finely ground espresso coffee beans.
This bar had a smooth, creamy dark chocolate flavor with bright sweetness and satisfying espresso coffee flavor accent notes, and a very faint touch of vanilla spice.
Ingredients: "Cacao, sugar, cocoa butter, crushed organic Peruvian espresso beans, vanilla, sunflower lecithin..."
