This is a beautiful, dark chocolate with high cocoa content (66.8% minimum) that is designed to slow you down. ‘Brazil’ is also special because of its unique ‘smoky’ flavours. To get the best out of this chocolate – and to recognise that dark chocolate takes more time to melt which is when it gives-up its flavours – just sit a small piece on your tongue and let it melt slowly. It will do this when it reaches your body temperature.
So this is all about taking time over your chocolate and really concentrating on it too: ‘mindfulness chocolate’ perhaps!
So, my challenge to you is to see how long you can make your packet of single origin chocolate last you. And all of a sudden, and you can look this up on the internet where there are lots of references to it, dark chocolate is a health food: it’s good for you too.
If you enjoy this chocolate, use the same way of eating chocolate as I have described and explore more single origin chocolates from other regions. They, like wine and coffee, vary depending on where they are grown and you will inevitably find some that you prefer to others. Let Nenette know and she’ll help you find your favourite.
