We always like to find new and interesting chocolate and on our travels we found this small-scale chocolate maker based in Ecuador. They use local Nacional Arriba beans and produce a range of dark chocolates.
The aroma of this 100% bar is divine. It's heavy, heady and punchy; it is actually fairly reminiscent of the AMMA 100% with its maple syrup and orange tones. The first bite will deliver more wisps of the orange but then deliver hazelnut, orange liqueur, brandy, banana and jasmine. There is just so much going on in this chocolate.
What we also like is the sheer thickness of each piece. You certainly won't need much to satisfy your needs.
Even after the melt the flavour still continues on the tip of your tongue and the sides of your mouth.
Despite being a 100% it’s not as strident as some. It's more restrained, but full of flavour.
