The salt is a nice contrast to the dark chocolate.
I’m all for trying new chocolate preparations but...a quick succession of burnt wood to sirloin steak then rotten mushroom lingers...not for me.
Very tasty and fun variety of chocolate
I was pretty skeptical about unroasted cacao, since it can be quite astringent and bitter, but this was delicious. It's different than roasted chocolate, so don't expect the same product. It has a softer mouthfeel and a much quicker melt, with a less developed flavor. The flavor is good, though - earthy, coffee, vanilla, spices, some fruity notes. And very little of the astringency or bitterness I expected. Enjoyable, and definitely worth trying to experience the full range of flavors in cacao.
Unroasted cocoa with a unique texture and flavor profile. Starchy and earthy with distinct potato flavor along with hints of liqueur and fruit. Weird, but in a good way.

Collection title: Chocolate with Salt
Collection description: Why is salt in chocolate so good? Salt is an inspired and natural pairing to chocolate (and sugar). Salt intensifies your body’s ability to taste sugar, and it also suppresses the bitterness of chocolate. Not to mention it also enhances the many flavor nuances found in single origin chocolate.

Reserva Zorzal is even more unique in the world of cacao, as they have set aside seventy percent of the preserve’s land to be forever wild. They’re part of a carbon-offset project with thirteen other landowners, employ local wildlife monitors, and serve as a model for the integration of conservation & sustainable agroforestry.
