My friend Tiff C. gave me this unusual Chuao bar.
This bar was delicious! Seriously, this was one of the best chocolates that I ate in 2012. It had a rich deep chocolate flavor, with wonderful bright notes so common in single origin bars but extra pronounced in this one. I liked this bar so much I deconstructed the whole package. The above image is the front flap, and this is what was underneath.
This shows how cacao beans are laid out to dry and ferment in the sun. And the back label contained the complete story of this bar.
This was really an amazing chocolate. Try it if you can find it!
