One Good Find: Santander 70% Dark Chocolate with Espresso
A Colombian dream team brought together
I love coffee and I love chocolate, and being Colombian, I have a special affinity for my homeland's terroir. Chocolate Santander brings it all together in their espresso-spiked, 70%-cocoa dark chocolate bar. Made from single-origin cocoa beans sourced from Colombia's Santander region and 100% Colombian espresso coffee, this chocolate reveals itself differently with each bite. As it dissolves, nutty, floral notes give way to a slight bitterness which balances the coffee's bold, fruity, vanilla-like flavors. The complexity of the chocolate has everything to do with the marriage of coffee, Colombia's most famous export, and hand harvested and processed fair-trade cocoa beans. When I'm craving something sweet but not cloying, and a little bit reminiscent of home, Santander's dark chocolate espresso bar is perfecto.
