Brix -  Medium Dark
Chocolate Bars
Cocoa Content: 60%
Type: Bar
Origin: Ghana

The word Brix is a play on words, as the chocolate is virtually the size and shape of a brick, but is also a play on the word for the level of sugar in wine grapes. The bar is packaged in a wooden looking box with a very straight forward label which has a few tasting notes and pairing recommendations. The bar has no divisions to be broken, but is intended to be broken off in random chunks via the use of a utility knife.

ki’XOCOLATL  72%
Chocolate Bars
Cocoa Content: 72%
Type: Bar
Origin: Mexico
In the Mayan and the Nahuatl languages, the word ki-xocolatl means: delectable chocolate. This name was chosen in honor of the two great pre-Hispanic cultures that dominated the cultivation of cocoa plants, and passed it on to modern man.  The carefully selected criollo beans are toasted and refined until a fine paste is obtained, which based in European traditions is then carefully blended for a minimum of twelve hours.  L’amandine uses only the finest ingredients in preparing its products to create the unique aroma and flavor of this crafted chocolate.
