Dark chocolate made with Catongo cacao.

Three years in the making… Arcelia received this cacao in 2017 and wanted to wait a little time for it to mellow out. Now she is ready to share this chocolate with you. The variety of cacao used for this bar produces an orange colored dark chocolate. With that color also comes some high acidity that is characteristic of this cacao variety - Catongo, a white forastero. Waiting for the cacao to mellow those three years has definitely given it the upper hand.

Arcelia received an award for this chocolate in 2017 from the Academy of Chocolate in London. That awarded chocolate bar was her first Brazilian chocolate to be awarded and was made with cacao from the 2016 harvest. This is batch # 2, let us see how you feel about it. :)

Interesting!

Light, orangey brown color with a soft, gooey mouthfeel. Looks more like a milk chocolate and has a similar mouthfeel. The main flavor I get is of floral honey

Unique variety, worth trying.

This bar is made with a unique variety of cacao called Catongo which is lower in compounds that often give cacao a dark color and some bitter flavor. While I didn't love this bar on the basis on flavor alone, it certainly wasn't unpleasant - notes of raisin, dried fig, and cookies, with very little bitterness and astringency. The texture was quite soft and overall the bar is very sweet. The really striking this is the light color - it's 70%, but looks like a reddish milk chocolate! I always like trying different varieties and origins, so I would recommend this bar if you eat a lot of craft chocolate and want to try something different.
