What We’re Eating: Fresco Ghana 211

Africa, Bar of the Week, Favorites, Regional Bar Collection / Monday, July 23rd, 2012

During anniversary month each of our staff members gets to choose a bar of the week for us to feature. While we all like excellent chocolate, we all have different palates, so it’s fun to see who will choose which bar.

Emily and Sebastian both chose bars by Fresco. Since Fresco founder and chocolate maker, Rob Anderson, will be here Saturday to sample his bars between 1 & 3, we decided to feature both Emily and Sebastian’s picks this week. Sebastian’s pick is below. We’ll post Emily’s Fresco choice on Friday. Stop by Saturday between 1&3 to meet Rob and taste these bars along with his other single-origin bars. – Lauren

Fresco 211 73% Dark Chocolate
Rob Anderson is a soulful and heart-warming person. His personality shines in the terrific chocolate he makes. Fresco Ghana is a truly unique bar. It is smooth and not overpowering, with flavors of oak, nuts and leather. This bar stops me in my tracks every time, making me think of the forest during the autumn.

Stop by Saturday and try a sample of Fresco’s Ghana bar and don’t forget to be here Saturday the 28th to meet the chocolate maker, Rob Anderson, in person.
