The Cooperativa Red Guaconejo has been a source of cacao for some wonderful chocolate makers including Fruition, Dick Taylor as well as the well-established Mast Brothers and smaller makers such as Middlebury and Woodblock - with the results being generally very positive.
This chocolate, however, is atypical of the brutish experience that you often get, but is more akin to a lively, red-fruity profile you would expect from a Madagascan origin chocolate. There is also a welcome tartness and an 'orange' vinaigrette profile with roasted walnut too. At the very end of the melt you may also get spearmint.
