Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate and Ecuador Theme Week.

Today's single origin, bean-to-bar Camino Verde, Ecuador 72% chocolate was made by J. Street Chocolate (San Francisco, CA).

Aroma notes included: subtle dark sweet chocolate with faint earthy notes.

Texture: well-tempered, this bar broke with a hard snap in a cool room; and it had a uniform texture and melt.

Flavor notes included: relatively bold, earthy chocolate (loam, buttermilk), with light, balanced sour and bitter earth notes. 

Maker's tasting notes: "Notes of rich cocoa, brioche bread, and elderflower"

Ingredients: "cacao nibs from Camino Verde in Ecuador*, cane sugar*, less than 1% cocoa butter*" (* = Organic)

Allergen-related information: organic ingredients; no other notes listed. (Made in a home kitchen.)
