Grenada Chocolate Company 71% Organic Dark Chocolate reviews

One Golden Ticket

“Grenada is one of the few makers that actually presses cocoa butter from their own cacao beans.”; “71% smelled strongly of tobacco, especially from a fresh break. Some cocoa was also present in that tobacco roast. Other scents in the aroma included floral, earth, a dairy that reminded me of cheese, and sweetness.”; “The taste of 71% was initially floral, followed quickly by roast, honey sweetness, earth, and spice flavors. As the chocolate melted, I tasted berry fruit and wine, along with some bitterness and acidity.” Rated 7/10 by Richard. (2012)


Seventy Percent

“If you want to understand the flavour of Grenada, you need to try this chocolate.” (Martin Christy, 2011)


20N & 20S

“This is fantastic chocolate. This would be great to give to a chocolate expert in a blind tasting just to watch them mull it over. I personally had to take several bites of it just to think about the taste.” (2010)


Koko Buzz

“What I love about this chocolate (both vintages) is the intense coffee notes blending perfectly with a marshmallow and whipped creme sweetness that is not at all cloying.” (2010)
