Pacari – Raw Chocolate 70% – Georg Bernardini

More articles by »
Written by: Georg Bernardini

Look/Snap:
Nice dark brown colour, shiny and with good snap

Aroma:
Ecuadorian cocoa is not my favourite cocoa, but I like the aroma of this bar. This chocolate has the taste as it should have. Fruity (citrus fruits), fermantation and lightly Jasmin.

Taste:
This is the real deficit of this bar. The taste is not fruity for me, it is sour, too sourĀ and I can tasteĀ also a little bit astrigency. The sourness overshadow the fruity taste too much. There is no control over the sourness during the production.

Melt & Lenght:
Nice melt and the lenght is ok.

This is a polarizing chocolate and for real chocoholics. I like the arome, but due to the strong sourness this chocolate is not one of my favourite.
