Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate and Haiti (Caribbean) Theme Week.

Today's Coffee Dark Chocolate bar was from Honeymoon Chocolates (St. Louis, MO).  sweetened with raw honey.

The company practices ethical sourcing and transparency. This chocolate (Bar #76452) was a blend of ingredients sourced from around the globe, including Haitian Cacao, Raw Honey (Missouri), Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Coffee from Reconstruction Coffee Roasters, and Peruvian Cacao Butter.

Aroma notes included: light, well-balanced cacao, wildflower honey and coffee.

Texture: smooth, relatively light and creamy texture, with an even, unhurried melt.

Flavor notes included: cacao, honey and high-end coffee, with very faint (barely detectable) fruit and floral.

I enjoyed the well-balanced flavors and the use of honey. This bar landed squarely into the Goldilocks zone. It had rich, nuanced flavors, but wasn't overly bold. The smoothness (in part due to raw chocolate) allowed the nuanced semi-floral honey notes to shine through. It had subtle sophisticated and smooth flavors and was gentle and approachable. It had natural honey sweetness, without being too sweet (thank you). In short, it was just right.
