High-end Chocolate bar with European truffle flair?
This kind of chocolate is the kind used in a lot of high-end chocolates where that intense chocolate with a European flair is needed and is a defining feature on the classical French Truffle taste. Often used as a chocolate shell on confectionary dark chocolate candies (like truffles) to kick the flavor up.
There is a very famous brand of Venezuelan chocolate that almost everyone has heard of. It's pretty expensive and has a very nice black package, but it still lacks something. This chocolate knocks that flavor right out of the park.
The cacao comes from the Sur del Lago region and is a blend of the Criollo (same variety as our Madagascar 65%) and the Trinitario beans (same variety as our Colombia 65%) grown there. It is at once a classic dark chocolate taste with a French flair but also very complex. You will probably taste something different in every bite.
Couverture chocolate: 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.
