Sharing is caring!

Bar: El Platanal 70%
Maker: Acalli (New Orleans, USA)
Price:  $8/49.6g (The New Orleans Airport)
Overall Rating:
Munch Factor:
 Organic Cacao Beans and Organic Cane Sugar.

Appearance: plain 12-block mold and unremarkable dark brown color with nice temper.
Aroma: sweet cocoa and green banana; quite earthy.
Melt & Snap: lovely melt & strong snap.
Flavor: sweet milk and cocoa, then fruitiness with very light astringency at the end. Finish is short and sweet.
Complaints & Complements: I had tried a couple of this maker’s bars a couple of years ago and was unimpressed with the texture and flavor complexity, but this is vast improvement! I would buy this again.
Context: sitting in my warm Korean apartment as it turns to winter here.
