Creating flavorful 100% chocolate can be elusive. They wanted to develop a pure cacao with bold character that was also approachable. They think you will be pleased with the results. This bar's single ingredient, Madagascar cocoa, is lightly roasted to preserve its natural acidity. A long conche cycle of heat and aeration softens any harsh notes often associated with pure cocoa.

Maker

Fresco

Fresco is a small craft chocolate maker in Lynden, Washington. The founder of Fresco, Rob Anderson, releases several combinations of roasting and conch profiles to create different variation bars from the same beans. Anderson, originally a computer scientist, took a trip to Washington and visited a chocolate shop and took a tour which initially sparked his chocolate interest. Since then, Anderson created his own machines to make small batches of test chocolate. While only using three ingredients for his bars; cacao beans, cane sugar and cacao butter, Fresco’s flavor range is uniquely diverse. He chose the name Fresco meaning fresh in Italian, which could translate into fresh taste, fresh ideas, or a fresh approach to chocolate making.

Cacao Region

Sambirano Valley, Madagascar

Perhaps the most famous growing region in the world, northern Madagascar's Sambirano Valley is known for its incredibly fruity cacao and aromatic herbs & spices. Over the past few decades three main plantations have popped up in the area to supply cacao to chocolate makers around the world, as well as some of the world's most valuable botanicals, namely vanilla, ylang-ylang, and essential oil extracts.

excellent 100% dark chocolate

This chocolatier, Fresco, does a really great job describing their chocolate (taste notes, process, etc) and offering many different origins/variations of 100% dark chocolate bars. All of them are great. This one stood out as having a particularly interesting flavor, but really all of the bars from Fresco are great.

A truly great bar of chocolate

I found this bar delicious--slightly fruity and a bit acidic. I read the packaging after tasting and found that Fresco described it as having citrus/grapefruit flavors, which is pretty spot on. Try this one if you can!
