These beans are the damnedest things. Just beans & sugar & nothing else but genuine caramel-knowledge whose behavioral action is both wild & artificial as Nadal’s wicked sidewinding top-spins - a combination natural ability pumped with steroids.

Flavor   47.2 / 50
starburst candy riot... rainbow skittles catches the comet -> cocoa-bubble yum gum -> spearmint -> lemon-lime -> dives into a down-pocket of more ‘real’ cocoa tones (nuts, acorns, twigs, bark, vines, dry bitter tannins)... only to hit a bursting point & blow up banana bubble yum ‘n jasmine for that extra layer of ‘wow’ -> eucalyptus, vetiver, & cedar
Quality   19.4 / 20
Breaks the box; inexplicable & bumptious. Extremely simple blueprint that truly befuddles. How did they pull this off? Explanations involving Maillard reactions, carmelization techniques, pyrazines, phenyl-enales derivatives, furaneols, hyroxymaltols, cyclotenes, et.al., sound insufficient. After awhile meaningful silence becomes the answer.

ING: cacáo beans, sugar
