Limited series 68% bar called Kumasi Samiriano. “For the Kumasi Samirano bar Scharffen Berger has blended the deep, earhty flavors of Ghanaian Forastero beans with the bright citrus tones of Madagascar Trinitario beans to craft a balanced, complex chocolate.” That’s the hype from SB.
We ordered five of these. When the package arrived and was opened, I was overwhelmingly hit with the aroma of peanuts. My wife smelled coffee. I wish I did, peanuts make me gag. This bar is not off ot a good start with me. But, that’s just me.
Haven’t opened one yet. Will let you know the consensus when we do.

It sounds extremely interesting what is written about the Jamaica à l’ancienne bar on the Scharffen Berger webpage. Can anyone explain to me, what all this means and what makes it possible to store it? Why is this bar storable while others are not?
As I would like to taste it, I talked to the German distributor of Scharffen Berger. They told me, that they will not get the Limited Edition bars (as they didn’t have the Guyagua). So I do not have the chance to get these bars in Germany.
Finally I managed to get some Guyagua and I can hardly wait to taste it. [:p] I hope it will arrive soon.

Possibly, we’ve been having trouble with supply, but are juts about to go direct, so I hope to get everything. Will keep you informed.
The Jamaica bar was ‘rough ground’, with a gritty, sugar texture. Not sure if this would really make is keep any better, but you’d notice any damage less I guess.
