It is for very good reason this is the very first chocolate that Amano released. It tastes incredible and has won numerous awards in the United States, Europe, and Asia. The cocoa Amano uses to make this chocolate comes from a cocoa plantation in the Sambirano Valley on the northwest coast of Madagascar. The owner of the plantation is a valued friend and colleague, so Amano are always sure to get his very best.
Each batch of our Madagascar chocolate is carefully roasted, stone ground, refined, and conched to bring out the very best flavors of the exotic cocoa beans we use. It is a laborious process, but each bit of extra effort pays off when using truly special cocoa to create a chocolate such as this. The final result explodes with a symphony of flavors. Try this chocolate and you’ll be sure you have found a favorite.
Tasting Notes: This chocolate has a rich gentle chocolate flavor with notes of balsamic vinegar, cherry, raisin & citrus.
