Megans Cookin: Amano Chocolate

Amano Chocolate

Awhile back I was one of the lucky people who got to try out some Amano chocolate . The Hubby and I did a chocolate tasting using their three different chocolate bars. That was some of the best chocolate I have ever tasted. I was thrilled when they sent me their newest bar, The Jembrana.

High quality chocolate wrapped in golden foil, you know your getting something special! The beans for this bar come from the Jembrana area in Bali, Indonesia. Using single origin beans, made in small batches using vintage machinery, this chocolate is a clear winner.

70% cocoa yet its smooth and not bitter like some chocolates I have tasted. Bitterness is The Hubby's #1 complaint of dark chocolate. If you would like to try some Amano chocolate, you can order it on line. I recommend one bar of each kind so you can do a tasting using this chocolate tasting guide. With Valentines right around the corner, this would make the perfect gift. The gift of perfect chocolate.

Amano makes some of the best chocolates in the world. They're one of a handful of true chocolatiers out there. If you can't find it at the store, you can always get some from!
