Original Beans – Cru Udzungwa
This bar from Amsterdam-based Original Beans presents the gorgeous flavour of Tanzanian cocoa beans. With hints of orange, apricot, and toffee, the chocolate is a rich tasting experience, but the bar also has ground cocoa nibs permeating it, providing a more complex, earthy texture.
Chocolate Makers Awajún Peru Dark Milk 52%

This is one you’re sure to remember.
