Chocolataria Equador Chocolate Negro Liso Amargo

My co-worker Leonard B. brought back a chocolate bar from a conference he attended in Portugal.


First off, let me just say that this was the first chocolate I have ever had from Portugal. How is this possible? I have no idea, but I intend to correct this oversight, because this bar was AWESOME! It was huge, so at 200 grams it was almost half a pound of chocolate. And it was delicious! It was super rich and chocolatey, far more than I would have expected from 73% cacao. I would have guessed 85% easily. And it was so smooth, without a hint of bitterness. I ate four pieces and I wanted more, as did my co-workers who helped themselves to seconds and thirds of this generously sized bar.

Thanks Leonard!
