Silver in “Best bean to bean dark” category – Academy of Chocolate Awards 2009

“Once in a great while, a great chocolate is created. This is one. We have created this chocolate exclusively with beans from the Ocumare Valley in Venezuela. The beans from Ocumare create a chocolate that is rich and chocolately but is also complex in flavor with hints of red fruit such as plum. We have created this bar using our traditional machinery and our own touch of love. If you have been waiting to see what an American chocolate maker can do, this is the bar for you.” (Amano)

Ingredients: cocoa beans, pure cane sugar, cocoa butter, whole vanilla beans.
