Flavor wise, I would say this bar is not too complex, but it is a rather bitter chocolate with the main focus on its strong roasted flavor, with some nuttiness and a subtle hint of savory. It is also noticeably not acidic unlike many other 100% bars. Imagine roasted coffee. The rather dark brown coloration also suggest that it has perhaps been roasted a bit on the high temperature side.
Texture wise, this is a very finely ground chocolate, and coats your tongue well due to the slight stickiness from the finely ground cocoa particles, which gives it a dense texture. However it is not too sticky or slimy so it still feels pretty smooth despite the slight resistance.
If you like a dense, bitter and roasted 100% bar, this is definitely for you.
This 100% bar, out of my expectation, does not have any sour taste that most dark chocolates have; it is bitter and nutty as is advertised. It has the flavor of a dark toast coffee. So I would recommend it to someone looking for bitterness rather than fruitiness. I also like it’s packaging; there are 2x32.5 packs in one case, very easy to consume for multiple times.
every 100% bar i've tried from Labooko has been great. the Ecuador single origin might be my favorite, but this one here, Peru single origin, is very tasty. a good balance of nutty and fruity undertones with a thick/dense and smooth texture.

Collection title: Cooperativa Naranjillo
Collection description: Cooperativa Agraria Industrial Naranjillo Limitada (COOPAIN) was founded in 1964 by a group of 32 farmers in the Peruvian Amazon city of Tingo Maria. The group’s objectives were two-fold: provide farmers with a dedicated route to market and guarantee fair prices for their products. Initially started as a coffee cooperative, cacao eventually began playing a very important role in the co-op’s business model, to the extent that the cocoa arm of their organization has been rebranded “Cooperativa Naranjillo.” Based firmly in the center of Peru, the many small cacao farms Naranjillo works with are all certified organic, and striving to use cacao as a tool to prevent deforestation in the Peruvian Amazon.
