In the last five months I tasted a lot of new chocolate: Friis Holm, Bojesen, Tobago Estate, Pralus’ Chuao, Idilio, Bouga Cacao, Bonnat (Haïti, Cuba, Piura), Cacao Sampaka, Vietnam of Morin and Puyricard, Fine & Raw, Rogue, Mast Brothers, Patric, Red Star and of course Original Beans’ Piura Porcelana and the new recipe of Beni Wild Harvest (I love them!).
Although I have tasted 494 different dark chocolates so far, I had never tasted a single origin from Guatemala.
On my blog about Amsterdam I got a comment from Cheebs. I didn’t know who he was so I became curious. I took a look at his site (www.dantachocolate.com) and found out that he not only makes bon bons but also chocolate…from Guatemalan beans! I would love to taste his chocolate and asked Cheebs if it was possible to order from The Netherlands. Yes, it is! Yesterday I received the package. I expected it to be good, but it is very good!!! I already tasted Los Ujuxtes and Las Acacias both 70%. They are quite different. The first one is spicy and the other fresh and fruity. To explore all the flavours I have to taste them a few times more…..
