Bar of the Week: Coppeneur's Ocumare

A 72% dark chocolate of Venezuelan criollo beans from Coppeneur, a relatively new and somewhat controversial German maker.  While the bar was reformulated after an earlier version proved unpopular, Ocumare continues to generate strongly diverging opinions among reviewers.  Rants note its marked acidity; raves hail its complex aroma, substantial texture, and buttery, fruity, and flowery notes 

This is exactly the kind of chocolate that sampling events were made for!  Join us on Saturday, February 6 for a taste of Coppeneur's Ocumare--and let us know which side of the debate you find yourself on.
