Amano Jembrana 70%

Amano Jembrana

Ingredients: Cocoa beans, pure cane sugar, cocoa butter, whole vanilla beans.

This 70% Jembrana bar comes from Amano, one of my favorite chocolate makers.  It’s made with beans from the southwest coast of Bali.  I love the new packaging of the bars.  Each one features different artwork – in this case, a piece by Martina Shapiro.

The flavor starts out earthy, very chocolatey and deep, before bright, fruity notes pop up to lighten the taste.  Some hints of citrus rind emerge, before it reaches a nutty end.

Like other Amano chocolate bars I’ve tasted, I loved the complexity of flavors.  Based on the bars I’ve tried, I’m not surprised that all five of Amano’s bars received medals at the 2009 Academy of Chocolate Awards.  I’m looking forward to seeing Amano at the SF Chocolate Salon in late March – hopefully, they’ll bring something new along!
