El cacao transformado en delicioso chocolate con una llamativa presentación #dominicanista #dominicanchocolate #ciguapalmera #cacaoteca

Rented side by sides to venture off to see how the coffee and chocolate is made. This was my face when they gave me a sample of hot chocolate 🍫 #DR #dominicanchocolate #polaris #2018 #hotchocolate

Chocolate Story - Cocoa + Cramberries 70% Dominican Republic

Hello xocolat lovers! Enjoy a refreshing thursday with our Frozen #CacaoOrganico #Dominicano #Dominicanchocolate #Sweet

This @raakachocolate collaboration bar is 🔥
.
Normally I don’t associate Japanese food with spicy, but add togarashi and 💥Chef Ivan Orkin (@ramenjunkie) made an extra fiery version by adding more ginger! This super photogenic togarashi blend includes red chili pepper, sanshō Japanese pepper, chenpi (roasted orange peel), black sesame seeds, white sesame seeds, hemp seeds, ginger, nori (seaweed) & poppy seeds. Love that the generous coating of inclusion ingredients stayed adhered to the bar! #swipeleftformore
.
Sharp snap + instant inner ear & back of the throat burn, so much so that it distracted from the unroasted Zorzal (D.R.) cacao ground with cane sugar & white sesame tahini. This bar is the perfect remedy for a stuffy nose or to kill any germs! 😱
.
Thick mouthfeel during the slow/even melt, the 66% base chocolate tasted sweeter once all the togarashi had been dissolved away. Chewing made the spices less intense so that I could enjoy the chewy texture of the sesame seeds and the citrus crunch from the orange peel. The burn was still there, but delayed. I’m a wimp when it comes to 🌶, but surprisingly I kept coming back for more!
.
Have you tried this March First Nibs bar yet?! LMK👇🏻

Couldn’t let the other Hispaniola bar feel neglected...
.
Thanks to @victoria.cooksey for sending me this @nearynogschocolate.
.
Love that the small plastic-lined pouch is resealable, but it seems pointless for such an adorable (yet tiny) 12g two-bite tasting square 🤷🏻‍♀️
.
Is it my imagination or does the glossy, textured mold pattern mimic the bumps and dimples of a cacao pod?! 🧐
.
Roasted aroma pre-break; medium/soft snap; fruity/berry smell at the break point. I was expecting a gritty texture due to the “stone ground” description on the label, but the mouthfeel was mostly smooth during the slow/even melt. Some concord grape flavor, but smoky & woody notes were more prominent. Back of the throat tang / bitter on the tongue. Long (pleasant) finish.
.
It’s great to have back-to-back tastings of the same origin by multiple makers. Just 2% more cacao, there are more differences than similarities!🤔
.
P.S. I was originally going to eat half and keep the other half for the solera. Flavor descriptions eluded me, so I ended up eating more than three-quarters of this square. 😱
.
Enjoyed trying their 100% Hispaniola bar, which also had a smoky aroma!

Some bars have been languishing in my stash since they didn’t match a “theme.” 😢This week, it’s time for these small bars to shine ✨
.
First up is this 3-ingredient, 70% Hispaniola, Dominican Republic bar from @hummingbirdchocolate in Ontario, Canada! Thanks @peacecyndi for sending this 💕
.
Love that they used every square inch of space on the card stock sleeve (both inside and out) to provide details of their bean-to-bar process + taking the opportunity to honor & thank the farmers involved. #swipeleftformore
.
The bar’s glossy, deep brown color was marred by some scuffing, so I buffed the surface lightly with a fingertip.
.
Fruity (light citrus) + roasted aroma straight out of the gold foil inner wrapper. Sharp snap, revealing some interesting shear patterns at the break. Smooth, creamy & almost juicy mouthfeel during the slow/even melt. A little crumbly when chewed.
.
More tart than sweet, the flavor reminds me or fresh grapes or cranberries.😋Lightly astringent on the tip of the tongue & palate with a pleasant, lingering finish.
.
It wasn’t until later that I decided to pair the packaging with another hummingbird item 😍
.
Have you tried this brand? What is your favorite bar/origin?👇🏻

Our trip to New Mexico was a success!
We spread the chocolate love at The Southwest Chocolate and Coffee Fest, met up with some amazing makers, and we got our bars into some more shops in New Mexico! (And we were fueled all weekend by delicious coffee from @onyxcoffeelab and @sopocoffee)

Look for us at @thegrovecafe!

P.S. Madi, I hope you have an awesome birthday weekend! Keep up the super cute insta story tastings with your daughter! 💕

P.P.S. I’m taking suggestions for a theme for “Round 4” of the Alphabet. In the meantime, I’ll be working my way through my stash of neglected bars 😉
