Grenada Chocolate Company Organic 71%


Had a quick opportunity to spend some time with the Grenada Organic 71% this morning, and enjoyed the experience as always. Without going on about the unique nature of this chocolate or the company, you can learn more about both here.

Grenada's packaging is beautiful, and the bar itself doesn't disappoint once opened--a very classy simple mold. Some small air bubbles were visible.

Once snapped, the aroma opened up into a musky, cinnamon spice. The first flavor was vegetative and earthy, as expected from the initial scent, but the palate evolved from there into a lovely black cherry and coffee tone with quite a buttery mouthfeel.


Overall, if you're after a unique origin organic bar from a really fascinating small producer, this is a great candidate for you. (Also a fine choice if you just want to taste some really delicious dark chocolate :-)

Hey! you recently showed me a short movie on the Grenada Chocolate Company that takes you into their literally home-grown operation, from inspiration to bean to bar. Can you provide a link? It makes me feel good to know that a chocolate I love is from a business that creating positive change.
