Maker's notes
You just picked up a bar that is unlike any other. We buy exceptional cacao beans from small farmer comparatives. Using only granite stone mills, we minimally grind these beans into a perfectly unrefined hand-crafter chocolate that is brimming with intense, bold cacao flavor. Take a bite, and you'll understand why we're dedicated to keeping the bean in the bar.

Tasting Experience
Like all Taza chocolates, this bar is out of the ordinary. First, the flavors coming out when opening the wrapper, are a mix of bitter cacao, cherries with hints of vanilla. Then, the typical stone ground texture is somehow grainy and may feel sandy, but in a nice way. The sensations when melting in the mouth are definitely bitter cacao and some red fruits enhanced by acidity. The after taste is not extremely long but the texture lingers on the tongue. Overall, a different kind of chocolate experience with an emphasis on textural feelings.
