Divine Dark Chocolate

The UK chocolatier Divine Chocolate Ltd. uses Fair Trade chocolate from a cooperative of cacao farmers in Ghana, called Kuapa Kokoo. These are as well shade-grown cacao beans from small individually run farms. This is a UK company, but it also says it is produced in Germany. The cacao content is at 70% and the ingredient listing looks good, cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter, soya lecithin and vanilla (all Fair Trade).

How did it taste? Pretty good, a fair indicator of how good their chocolate is and tastes (I always have said that the signature bar for any chocolatier, showcasing their chocolate, is their no-extra-flavours-added bar). I would say that this is the best bar made from Ghana cacao beans I have tasted. This was bought at a health food store for about $3.
