Today's chocolate is from Michel Cluizel in Paris. The beans are from a single plantation in the Dominican and the bar is 67% cocoa. It's neat that the cocoa is from just one plantation that has been farmed by the same family for over 100 years. The chocolate is good, it has a good flavour and is stronger than other bars in the 60% range I've had. It's not nearly as smooth as the Valrhona bars however I've since learned that smoothness is sort of a trademark of Valrhona. Despite the lack of smoothness, the taste and texture end well and it still goes down nicely.
