Beniano cacao beans which are grown wild in the rainforest of Amazon basin, in the Beni province of Bolivia. This variety is only found in small concentrated quantities dispersed over a large area.
Aroma of citrus fruit. A sweetness resembling a melange of prunes and rum, with a vanilla note. A pleasant tropical fruit acidity and a long-lasting finish.
(Each tablette contains a minimum of 90g of dark chocolate with 68% cocoa)

I received this tablette as a free gift because I'd paid for postage but Russell and Albert then arranged delivery by hand to make sure my order arrived in time. Wonderful service - personal delivery and an extra sample. This illustrates their philosophy and shows why Fifth Dimension Chocolates deserve to be a huge success.
They chose a really good bar for me to sample. Opening the packet, the smell was amazing rich and warm. The tempering had stayed glossy (surviving high summer temperatures) and each piece broke with a crisp snap. The flavour was really smooth, with no trace of the bitterness in some high cocoa chocolates. Thank you so much.

I ordered this because of the "Wild Bolivian" in the name made it seem like a must try as I ordered a number of different chocolates at one time All of them were wonderful and all were different. We had a sort of tasting party with another couple and this one really stood out as a group favorite. (Personally I am a bigger fan of the Colombian 65% but can understand how everyone loved this one even more.) The texture and taste are wonderfully delicious. It was a treat for my dinner party to get some different single source chocolates from 5d and for pudding taste them all. Each was wonderful and we were surprised how different each one is from the other.
