Colombia Tumaco:
direct transfer of the Aromatics, simply stronger with a dose of gas & soot to boot which smothers any trace of a nuance

Ditto (as the Colombia Tumaco above) except sweeter (loquat) & more gaseous & more bitter (betel); cinnamon listed on the label but virtually undetectable

Peru
black coffee, 2 sugars

Madagascar
sourdough charcoal
Quality   10.3 / 20
Bonfire chocolate. Whether roasted long ‘n strong or short ‘n torched, this just burnt beyond recognition. If a campfire sing-a-long, the sticks holding the marshmallows would be incinerated along with them (perhaps the tents too).

Nothing left but to call the sanitation dept.

Sorry.

In actuality, stovetop pan-roasted; toasted to a charred crisp for easy peeling. A method reinforced by glowing Yelp! reviews. So much for Yelp! reviews. Seriously, this isn't chocolate, it's charcoal.

(10 points in this Quality Section a homage to decent if desecrated cocoa beans from Uncommon Cacao.)

INGREDIENTS: cocoa mass, sugar
