The Grenada Chocolate Company
The Grenada Chocolate Company was one of the pioneers of the tree-to-bar revolution, as well as one of the first to manufacture chocolate in the cacao producing country. Since its inception in 1999, the company has maintained its commitment to fair prices and sustainable production, paying 65% above the market price and using solar energy as much as possible. They make organic chocolate bars in a range of cocoa percentages from 62% to 100%, as well as nib and salt bars, all of which are manufactured by locals in the village of Hermitage, St. Patrick's.
Dark Chocolate – Grenada - 60%
Aroma: dusty, starch, vanilla, crayon, kind of waxy
Flavor: raspberries, cocoa powder, dry soil, coffee, dried grass, dark roasted almonds, generic dark chocolate, dryness – slight astringency. A bit muddy and some overripe fruit/earthy flavor. Dry soil.
Recommendation: Not recommended. It’s a wonderful company and certainly not bad chocolate, but not particularly remarkable. I will have to try some other bars from them but for the moment I can’t say that I recommend this one.
