Honduras la Mosquitia 85%: Milagro {beanfield war}


The region of Honduras where the cocoa beans we use to craft this bar are grown is the location described in the wonderfully engrossing book The Lost City of the Monkey God by Douglas Preston--the least-explored, most remote rainforest in Central America. 

But on to the chocolate: deep, dark, with notes of devil's food cake. Which, if you've had that, can oft be overshadowed by the frosting so routinely applied to the top. These beans make a wonderfully sweet-on-their-own chocolate, thus the higher %. 

As the saying goes, all that glitters is not gold, and too much of a sweet thang can mask the story the chocolate is trying to tell. The namesake for this bar btw, is the novel by John Nichols, has nothing to do with monkey gods (or does it?), but everything to do with fences and lines drawn in the sand.
