Hoja Verde Ecuador 80%
By Hoja Verde
Made with the finest Esmereldas beans from Ecuador, this deliciously dark chocolate has an almost savoury quality. Beneath the smooth surface of this bar, you’ll discover powerful tannins that develop into an intense, but not bitter, earthy flavour with raisiny notes.

I can definitely taste banana, which I'm pleased with as I am so rubbish at defining what flavours I can taste. I had been putting off trying this as I am preferring the under 70% chocolates, but it's pleasantly not bitter, though perhaps just a little bland. It's really for me, but I will probably try the 66% choc by the same maker.

It is certainly tannic and earthy, with a bitterness that shows in the after-taste. There are some gentle fruity notes of which banana seems to be the most obvious. The acidity is subtle. It's a good bar, though I would prefer something with more vibrant flavours.

Beautiful soft breakdown, complex profile revealing notes of banana, artichoke, dried fig, Good savoury depths; tastes very natural and unrefined – and yet the texture is luscious. Nice dry finish. A serious, high quality chocolate.

This chocolate bar is strongly nutty with deep cocoa tones. There is a slight lime acidity which stops it being overbearingly intense, and it leaves a contrasting sweet aftertaste.
