Piety and Desire Chocolate - One of New Orleans' few Bean to Bar chocolate manufactures.KILOMBERO VALLEY TANZANIA 70% Cacao. Tasting Notes: Cherry, Plum, Crème fraîche, Iced MochaOrigin Notes: Deep in the heart of the Kilombero Valley, in an old dance-hall powered by a creaky crank generator, a social enterprise called Kokoa Kamili cranks out flavorful cocoa dances in a town called "Heaven" - Mbingu, Tanzania. Kamili's Swahili for "precision," and while the more sultry sounds of this disco have ceased, the vibrations remain, reverberating complex rhythms of this cacao's character, which is truly one of the more all encompassing in all the world; name a flavor, and she likely makes an appearance - even if she's more like a wallflower for the more prominent dancers, who perform more fruit-forward displays of passion with poly-rhythmic "precision. DAK NONG VIETNAM 70% Cacao. Tasting Notes: Honey, Marzipan, Fig, Peanut, Brownie BatterOrigin Notes: A lone scooter's putter cuts through the placidity of the valley. Two bags of Cacao pods hold on, slung over the back wheel, while another huddles up front between the driver's legs. Purring past plantings of black pepper and coffee, beneath the breaths of majestic mountains, they make their way to the lone fermenter in the region, one of only 26 cacao farmers in the whole group. There, the novelty of this cacao culminates in an unsung sweetness with a deceptive complexity to its flavorful crescendo, layering the palate like the pitter-patter of gongs plying the foothills of Dak Nong's songs. Sold per 2.82 oz. bar.
