We went to the distillery district this weekend to look around and just to have a nice walk. Of course we stopped in to Soma to get some gelato and I noticed that Soma is making "microbatch" chocolate bars now. They actually purchase and process the raw beans themselves so they control almost all stages of production.
Anyway I picked up a bar made of beans from the Dominican Republic. I haven't had any high quality chocolate lately so I'm enjoying this bar even more. It's 70% cocoa content and the beans are fair trade and organic. The chocolate is smooth and has a pleasant aftertaste. I can't wait to try some of their other microbatch bars, however they appear to sell out quickly. This isn't surprising since they can't make that many at once.
