Sharing is caring!

Bar: 100% Esmeraldas
Maker: Hoja Verde (Quito, Ecuador)
Price: $4/80g (Tourist Center in Quito, Ecuador)
Overall Rating: 7.5/10
Munch Factor: 2/10
Ingredients: Organic Cocoa Liquor

Appearance: Very dark, almost black in color, with pre-broken mold; the blocks have diagonal rays.
Aroma: Earthy and very nutty with some cocoa.
Melt & Snap:  Decent melt & very strong snap.
Flavor: Bitter to start and then earthy and savoury; cocoa in the middle, with no more bitterness. I am not going to say it was a sweet finish, but it was at least nutty.
Complaints & Complements: The plastic in the middle could be easier to open, but the outside is nice. A bit gimmicky, though. Overall, better than I expected!
