Hoja Verde – Ecuador 100%
By Hoja Verde
An Ecuadorian 100% bar, this smooth chocolate avoids the bitter aftertaste that puts many people off trying 100% chocolate.
This bar, made from nothing but Ecuadorian cocoa, is a fantastic example of the pure flavour of Ecuadorian chocolate. We were truly taken by its smooth texture, which balances nicely with the tannins. Though it does have the almost savoury flavour you expect from a 100% bar, it doesn’t have a bitter aftertaste, which makes it a great place to start your journey into 100% chocolate.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Hoja Verde is a maker on a mission. It’s determined to prove that Ecuador is a source of not only world-famous cocoa beans, but fantastic chocolate bars as well. Cocoa Runners is delighted to be the first to welcome Hoja Verde to Europe.
Hoja Verde sources the beans for its bars from APROCA, an associative organisation of 400 Afro-Ecuadorian families located in the lowlands of the Esmeraldas province in northwest Ecuador. The beans are only taken from trees grown on shaded plantations – ensuring the ongoing balance of the diverse natural habitat.

Loved it and as the description says, you definitely get the Ecuadorian taste. It's pretty different to most 100% bars in taste profile, and might disappoint some.

Nice, but nothing special. not as bitter as you expect or want 100% bar to be. If you are looking for more 'delicate' taste- I assume this is the one.
