The AMANO Blog One of the things I have always found most wonderful about chocolate is how unlike it is from so many other foods: it reaches in and touches a person’s soul. Few foods do that, and none that I’m aware of do so so completely. Because of this, I have had some incredible experiences. People of all walks of life tell me what a profound impact our chocolate has had on them and how much they love that experience. (or love the chocolate?) The same goes for some well-known chefs whom I have admired from afar for years.
Dos Rios Dominican Republic
One day a friend called me excitedly about some very special cocoa beans he found in the Dominican Republic. He said they were truly unique, and I was the perfect person to make them into chocolate. Industrial chocolate companies like their chocolate to taste simply like “traditional chocolate.” This does not. This chocolate has a haunting flavor like bergamot, orange and lavender. These natural flavors are due to the unique way the coca beans are fermented. It took all of my skills to do these beans justice. I believe you will be thrilled by the results. If you want to try a chocolate with that extra bit of “magic,” this is it.
