Bar of the Week: Amano's Jembrana

Since Seattle is not getting much of a summer this year, we're sending our taste buds on vacation with a month-long celebration of chocolate from Southeast Asian origins.  Our current Bar of the Week is Amano's Jembrana, a 70% dark chocolate made from beans grown in Bali.  Jembrana boasts a rich but subtle chocolate flavor with soft notes of honey and fig.
Amano is an artisan chocolate maker located in Salt Lake City ("One of the highest-altitude chocolate manufacturers in the world!").  Amano chocolates are kosher-certified and although the company has not sought fair trade certification, it does pay its farmers well above markets rates for cacao. 

We'll be offering samples of Amano's Jembrana on Saturday, August 14th.  Come join us in virtual Bali!
