Venezuela Chuao Aragua 77%

 

Aroma: sour, earthy, green apple, a little astringent

Flavor: Quite acidic with pleasant citrus flavors - yellow fruit, lemon, candied lemon peel, Meyer lemon- and a little red fruit but without much depth or complexity. Also earthy, wood, dusty liek cocoa powder, chocolate buttercream. When it melts, some creaminess emerges but still a slightly granular texture. Very little bitterness, not much astringency. I wonder if a slightly longer roast and conche would bring out some nice flavors.

 

Recommendation: Not recommended. No major defects but lacking in complexity, and the texture is a bit off.
