Description

This chocolate bar is beautifully intense and flavorful. Using a blend of cacao sourced from Africa, Venezuela and Ecuador, Javier Rodriguez uses stone grinding equipment to create a paste that is then formed into a thick bar of chocolate. This particular bar as the added bonus of being studded with plump pieces of candied orange peel. It is dark and intense with a perfect balance of sweet and bitter with with an earthy backdrop of flavor. The texture is grainy from the stone grinding method which yields larger sugar and chocolate grains.

Please note, this is a rustic style of chocolate and is prone to blooming. This means that some of the bars may have a whitish color on the exterior. This bloom does not affect the flavor of the bar.

Xocolates Aynouse

Ihsan was introduced to chocolate maker Francisco Javier Rodriguez Perez on a recent trip to the Catalonia region of Spain.

After working many years for prestigious Spanish Chocolatiers, Javier decided to make chocolate based on his own philosophies.

Xocalate Aynouse is based in the town of Agramunt (about 75 miles west of Barcelona). This is a chocolate made using ancient Spanish techniques (which are based on the even more ancient South American techniques they learned while conquering).

All of his chocolate is stone-ground using a blend of three origins of cacao beans (Africa, Venezuela and Ecuador) with cocoa butter and virgin cane sugar from Reunion island. The final product has a gritty texture with an pure, earthy flavor.
