Excellent Beans

I made single-origin bean-to-bar chocolate with these beans following the method from Chocolate Alchemy. The recipe was for a 70% dark chocolate (63% cacao, 7% cacao butter, 30% cane sugar by weight), run for 36 hours in the melanger. The resulting chocolate is lovely, more on the delicate side as you'd expect from a criollo. The chocolate notes come through clean and clear, and there are plenty of nuances that keep the sensory experience interesting. Bitterness and astringency are both subdued; most people say that it tastes like a 40-50% dark. Will buy again!
