Solkiki Marañón 70 Unroasted

This post is well overdue, having been given the bar at last years Chocolate Show (London 2016) and then finally opening it the following Easter

Bob and Iris are the two chocolate makers behind Solkiki, and when we met for the first time, this friendship meant they wanted to gift me a chocolate bar of theirs. Tasted all, listened to Bob give a little background into each bar, and my choice had to be the UNROASTED Maranon
Solkiki's Marañón was smoky, astringent on tongue, a little metallic, black tea. The melt was somewhat gummy. And overall, it left me thinking: I like that

Both Solkiki and Chocolate Tree have mentioned how delicate the Marañón is when it comes to roasting the beans, so it's a Peruvian region worth trying
