Colombia - Single Origin - Dark Chocolate 65%

‬Deep,‭ ‬dark,‭ ‬slow chocolate flavors with hints of spice.‭ ‬Like a dry wine.

Each chocolate Bar is equal to 10 of the ingots.

Every bite has some taste surprises in it.‭ ‬It's hard to describe because it's pretty unique tasting,‭ ‬but great.‭ ‬After you eat a bar,‭ ‬the flavor just stays with you and you have to think about it.‭ ‬And its only‭ ‬125‭ ‬calories per square.‭ ‬Milk free.

The‭ ‬Colombia uses Trinitario cacao beans which are also used with our amazing‭ ‬Venezuela‭ ‬65%‭ ‬chocolate bars.‭ ‬There's an interesting story about the Trinitario's.‭ ‬In the‭ ‬1800‭'‬s there was a disease that wiped out a lot of the cacao trees in‭ ‬Trinidad and the Criollo and the Forestero's had cross bred and the resulting trees were pretty resistant.‭ ‬Someone figured it out and used this accidental cross breed to guard against further blight and the result was a very hearty and amazing tasting chocolate.‭ ‬I've had some snobs tell me that they only like Criollo like everything else isn't really chocolate,‭ ‬but when we started selling chocolate bars this variety was so excellent that it immediately went to the top of the heap.‭

‬So it's no wonder that the Trinitario beans are the most common used beans in fine dark chocolates.‭ ‬It is really a trinity of tastes that are divine.

Wine Pairings -‭ ‬Wine and chocolate naturally go together

This is the highest quality of chocolate that usually has more than‭ ‬30%‭ ‬cocoa butter.‭ ‬It has a richer and more sophisticated taste and is really designed to give the maximum flavor with the least amount of chocolate and is used for covering candies like truffles.‭ ‬I chose this quality of chocolate not because it was the most profitable‭ (‬it isn't‭) ‬but because it has the maximum amount of taste.
