I’m just wondering that if this Quantum Rio Caribe is the same as the Rio Caribe offered in their cru assortment line. Both are 70%. Have you tried it, Martin? And has anyone tried the Kashaya yet?

Monte, Alex (and Martin) has tried Kashaya. I bought a box myself in June, but somehow it has disappeared. Alex liked it alot, but when we met in Berlin, he described further what it was like, and I decided not to buy a new box. (Btw Monte, e-mail coming soon ;-) please bear with me …)

Okay, I’m patient [:)] I was thinking about getting a box of Kashaya with my last order, but I decided not to. I want to save something for next time, something to look forward to.

Try eating Kashaya with another chocolate at the same time – create your own nibs chocolate! I’m addicted to this right now.

I’m told that the Rio Caribe in Quantum is the same as in the tasting square, i.e. it’s not the couverture version, but I’ve yet to see the ingredients.

speaking of mixing: i had a piece of domori madagascar with a piece of 100% this morning. the 100 gave a nice rough contrast to the fruity madagascar.

Excusez-moi but what is a puckery kick???

The puckery kick I am referring to is a cherry-like red tartness that suddenly appears, rather unexpectedly. It’s quite a shock to taste this (a pleasant one, though) after tasting hazelnuts and softer fruits such as bananas throughout the rest of the melt.

The ingredients for Rio Caribe are as follows:

“70% flavor cacao beans, cane sugar, vanilla, lechitin”

The same applies to Esmeraldas, but the other three (Carenero, Sur del Lago, and Sambirano) all contain simply “flavor cocoa mass and cane sugar.”

The ingredients are listed on the back of each wrapper.

i found this list of ingredients on domori’s website:

“min.cocoa 70%. flavor cocoa mass, cane sugar”

that makes it different from the tasting square which contains vanilla and different from the couverture which has a minimum of 75%.

Doh, who would have thought of looking at the web site? hehe Also, the couverture has added lechitin.
