Amedei chocolate

Chocolate is a concept. An exotic aspiration of beauty and flavour, embodying the bitterness and darkness of sin, with the sweet captivation of seduction. Chocolate is a subtle form of the inaccessibility of perfection, the flavour of sensual beauty that only intelligence can contemplate, elevating it

This week I got this "Amedei" chocolate box from my boyfriend, thank you babe! Is the first time I try this brand and I am loving it. This particular box “La Selezioni” has 5 different bars, each bar containing 12 pieces.

One of the bars is "Porcelana" which is made with the finest cacao bean of them all, criollo. Amedei makes about 20 000 Porcelana bars every year and each bar gets a handwritten number on the back. I got the lucky number 03179.

The main advantage of criollo is that it tastes aromatic and not bitter despite the high percentage of cacao, 70% in this case.

By the way, my name is Mila and I am chocoholic…absolutely and unconditionally chocolate lover!
