Review: Potomac Chocolate – San Martin Peru 70% (****)

Potomac. Until a year ago, this name would mainly remind me of a river in Washington America. Today it is a name of a chocolate maker who’s products I was dying to try! I was very excited do discover some of their bars in a package I received recently. Made from nothing but the bare…

Review: Amedei Blanco de Criollo – 70% (*****)

Now here is a first for me. After reviewing so many exciting bars, this time around I present you a blend.
