This is a bar of great intent: a melange of six origin cacaos our chocolate makers separately roasted, ground, and aged... then blended, conched together, and aged again. And we tasted, every step of the way, until it hit all the right notes. Though no sugar is added, the bright acidity manifests as natural sweetness. Perception of bitterness is a highly subjective phenomenon (some of us contain more bitterness receptors in our mouths than others). This blend surprised us with its balance. We taste raisin, espresso crema, and almond butter.
