For this bar Stonegrindz takes us to Hacienda Victoria Farm, a family run farm on the Ecuadorian coast. This region of Ecuador has been growing fine cacao for thousands of years. The bean used is an ancient heirloom varietal known for its fine flavor profile.

Ella's tasting notes: This bar is creamy. It melts like a smooth butter, releasing a rich chocolate flavor. The melt and flavor are reminicent of a dark chocolate truffle.  There is an undertone of heavy cream, adding a depth to the rich chocolatey flavor. There are notes of toasted hazelnut, faint whispers of dried currant and vanilla.  The depth of the rich chocolate flavor from these beans runs as deep as their history.  Perfectly balanced and so so creamy, it will change how you think about high-percentage chocolate bars.
