2021 International Chocolate Awards Winner: Silver for Micro-Batch/Origin Dark Chocolate Bars.

Ella's tasting notes:

The Masaya bar melts quickly, releasing a host of complex flavor notes. The texture is smooth and creamy. The bar begins with rich, earthy chocolate notes, followed immediately by intense lemon. The lemon gives it a brightness, and the fresh lemon notes transition to grilled lemon with hints of cranberry, followed by green banana, then caramelized banana pudding, but still with the bright lemon notes. 
----------

To The Nose - To a light sniff it smells like chocolate. To a big inhale there seems to be a bit of cherry or sweetness to it.

The Break - a good break not exactly a snap.

First Bite - not hard but firm

First Melt - dark, that cherry smell comes thru to the tongue

Second Melt - the cherry is less pronounced and more richness of a dark chocolate. If you push the melting chocolate with your tongue towards your front teeth you might get the hint of cherry.

Bite Away - The bite is good. You get a a more pronounced flavor of spices, including a hint of sweet cinnamon.
