Among the 100% beans I have tasted so far, this one has the best texture. They managed to make an extremely finely ground chocolate without the associated stickiness from the fine cocoa solids. The chocolate melts rather quickly on your tongue and yields a fine and smooth buttery texture, which really beats most 100% bars I have tasted. Flavor wise, you immediately get hit with a distinct grassy note when you pop it into your mouth, a noticeable hit of lemongrass. After letting it sit for a while in your mouth you will notice a slight bitterness and dryness, with some noticeable acidity. Overall it is a great bar, a bit on the pricey side but well worth it. Definitely must try for 100% bar lovers.
Goodnow Farms 100% Cacao
This is a well-done 100% bar from one of my favorite makers. It has a very pleasant aroma with notes of butter, flowers, cherries, and chocolate buttercream. The flavor is intense; this is not what I would call a mellow 100% like the Pralus 100% or Akesson's Madagascar criollo 100%. It's slightly bitter, with a slight dryness, and lots of rich buttery texture with good tanginess as well. If you want something less intense try one of the two mentioned above, but if you already know you like 100%, give this a try!
Great chocolate, super tasty and very aromatic. I live opening the package and getting the great smell of real chocolate..

Collection title: Goodnow Farms
Collection description: Goodnow Farms chocolate is handcrafted in Massachusetts. All the cacao they use is ethically sourced from small farmers and producers that Tom and Monica have met during their travels throughout Mexico, Central and South America. The cacao is carefully stone ground, and conched in small batches. They also press their own cocoa butter for each bar. They admired the concept of single origin bars and capturing the different taste profiles, and uniqueness through each bar. They discovered their love for real craft chocolate after visiting a vintage shop in Los Angeles. Tom and Monica officially created Goodnow Farms in 2016 but have been crafting their creations since 2008. The pair works hard to engage with the communities where they receive their cacao from to ensure farmers are fairly compensated and practice sustainable farming.
