This bean from Peru is Fair Trade and Organic Criollo Cacao.The flavors are light and delicate. Mild is the official chocolate term. There are also fruits galore. There were banana, strawberry, plum, mango other general tropical fruits. In the chocolate itself, no one flavor dominates, and you get a very soft fruitiness. Again, more like a ripe peach or apricot. Of course, there is chocolate which is solid without being too subtle or too bold and is balanced by a slight bitterness, but hardly any astringency to speak of.
Don’t try to make it what it is not, a big beefy chocolatey bean. Expect it to be what it is and can be – a cacao bean with significant Criollo stock, a “fine flavor” cacao bean.
