Stone Grindz

Based in Scottsdale, Arizona, Stone Grindz Chocolate makes four single origin bars, a handful of fun inclusion bars, and stunning truffles.

Peru Ucayali River 70%


Aroma: rich buttery aroma, delicate toasted nuts, sweetgrass,


Flavor: Some classic Peru flavor, very light astringency, buttery richness with the slightest greenness, brightness and a well-rounded acidity, little bursts of a fresh orange tanginess emerge as it melts, dark cherry, caramel, toasted walnut. Very clean flavor with no muddiness, very little bitterness.


Recommendation: Highly recommended. One of the best Peru bars I have ever tried. Sublime.

Wild Bolvia 70%


Aroma: rich and complex, leather, raisins


Flavor: Lovely classic Bolivia flavor. Creaminess with no unpleasant starchiness and lots of sweetness. Graham crackers, distinct toasted grains, very slight toasty dryness, pecans, light brown sugar. Slight delicate tang, dried cherry, buttery richness, grape. They bring out a lot of gentle fruitiness from an origin that is otherwise often creamy with little to no fruitiness. They say apple, cashew – I would mostly agree.


Recommendation: Highly recommended. A beautifully made example of the best of Bolivian beans.

Near the end, warm, soft floral flavors fill your mouth. Virtually no bitterness.
