Bar of the Week: Amedei Porcelana

Region: Venezuela

Bean Type: Criollo

Cocoa Content: 70%

Widely considered to be the best chocolate in the world, Amedei's Porcelana is a fine example of how great dark chocolate should taste. When experienced each bite must be savored, for it is a true indulgence in the world of chocolate, though the price is much more agreeable when compared to a vintage bottle of wine. The name "porcelana" refers to the color of the cacao pod from which the beans are extracted. The outside of the pod is white, almost translucent, and is reminiscent of porcelain.

This delicate strain of cacao produces a beautifully mild, subtle, well-balanced chocolate. The next time you're in our shop, consider the Amedei Porcelana. It's an investment you won't regret!
