Scharffen Berger Finisterra 10th Anniversary Limited Series Blend, featuring cacao from Venezuela, Trinidad, & Madagascar.
Ingredients: Cacao beans, sugar, cocoa butter, non-GMO soy lecithin, whole vanilla beans.
Scharffen Berger came out with this blended bar to celebrate their tenth anniversary; they named it Finisterra, Latin for “land’s end,” to represent their “search for the world’s best cacao”.
It’s fruity to start – some berry, then develops into citrus. The finish tastes like rind and wood, but also spicy. Scharffen Berger’s done well with this blend; it has a good amount of complexity, with a mildly bitter finish that still feels light. It’s a good fit for fall.
