Hachez 88% Premier Cru

The German chocolatier Hachez uses South American cacao beans, and, as far as I know, beans from Ecuador specifically (I have enjoyed a number of bars made from beans from Ecuador). The ingredient listing is good, cocoa beans, cocoa butter, cocoa powder, sugar, soya lecithin and Bourbon vanilla. The cacao content is at 88%.

How did it taste? The high cacao content of this bar, 88%, made me a little leery at first, I was expecting chalky chocolate, but it snapped well, was creamy and smooth, not at all chalky, and tasted very good. I got a little bit of coconut flavour from the bar, but this did not make me like the bar less. My beautiful Bride enjoyed this bar as well. I would definitely buy this bar again.
