Indi Nicaragua Chocolate

I got this bar at the Indi chocolatier in Pike Market in Seattle.

Like their Ecuador Heirloom bar, this bar was also 72% cacao. And it tasted like it, with a deep rich chocolate flavor. However, I didn’t taste much of a singular note like the Ecuador bar, or the two Friisholm bars that came from Nicaragua. I mean, it was still great chocolate, but it didn’t taste like a single origin bar, and the Ecuador bar was so much richer. Still, I have one more bar to try from this chocolate maker, and my hopes are high.

Friisholm Nicaliso Pure Dark Chocolate 70%

This week my co-worker Dini brought in a second Friisholm bar, which was also my second bar from Nicaragua.

This bar was delicious, very dark and smooth and deep, with a touch of citrus-like aftertaste as its single origin note. I think their Chuno bar is better, but both are fantastic, so that would just be splitting hairs. My co-workers also loved this bar, with some running over to my office when they found out it was another bar from Frissholm. I think we have a new hit brand on our hands!

Thanks Dini!

Friisholm Chuno Dark Chocolate 70%

My co-worker Dini brought this bar into work for us to try during my chocolate eating meeting.

Wow, this bar was fantastic! It had a deep rich chocolate flavor, and being single origin, there was a slighty sour fruit aftertaste, somewhat reminiscent of citrus. I loved it, and so did my co-workers! Dini let me have some extra pieces and confided that this bar cost twenty dollars! So it was expensive, but so worth it! And this was my first bar from Nicaragua! What a great introduction to chocolate from that country!

Thanks Dini!
