Welcome to Day #5 of Chocolate and Haiti Theme Week.

Today's 75% Dark Chocolate PISA*, Haiti (bar) was from Markham & Fitz (Bentonville, Arkansas).

Aroma and flavor notes included: dark, chocolate-y; warm spice (cinnamon, five spice blend); and fruit (grape, raisin, citrus).

Texture: smooth, with a very slight astringency.

This relatively flavorful dark chocolate had an authentic, lightly acidic (raisin, citrus and spice), sweetness and complexity to it that I enjoyed tasting.

Maker's tasting notes: "Cinnamon raisin and brownie cover the palate swaying from side to side. Orange peel quickly spins, and dried fig follows up to dip you for a lingering finish."

Ingredients: Organic Cacao, Organic Cane Sugar

Allergen-related information: "Processed in a facility that also processes dairy and nuts."

*Produits des Iles SA (PISA) works with 100s of cacao farmers in Haiti to produce high-end, fermented and dried cacao (beans) for specialty markets--and smaller-batch, bean-to-bar chocolate makers. Their facilities are centrally located for farmers (between five growing regions) in a relatively mountainous area.
