Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate and Coffee Theme Week.

Today's Coffee Infused Chocolate Topped with Cacao Nibs and Coffee Beans (bar) was from Ethereal Confections (Woodstock, IL). The company offers a variety of bean-to-bar chocolate bars and chocolate confections.

Aroma notes for this bar included: dark chocolate, cacao (nibs), and roasted coffee.

Smooth dark chocolate was interspersed with crunchy cacao nibs and tiny pieces of coffee bean.

Flavor notes included: dark chocolate (ganache, fudge brownie) faint earth and nut, authentic cacao (nib) and coffee. 

This 66% cacao dark chocolate wasn't too sweet (thank you). It tasted a bit darker than 66%--more like 70% dark chocolate--thanks to the presence of coffee, cacao nibs and coffee bean pieces that added texture and balanced out the sugar. 

The flavors were nicely balanced, complementary; and there were no "off" notes (that can occasionally happen with the odd cacao bean nib. Not here.

Ingredients: Organic chocolate (organic cocoa beans, organic cane sugar, organic cocoa butter), organic coffee beans, organic cocoa nibs

Allergen-related information: Made on shared equipment with peanuts and tree nuts. (Vegan.)
