October Meeting -- Sunday, October 4th at 2:00pm
By now, those of you following our Chocolate Club have learned about the many subtle differences in chocolate of origin, and why they no longer can be described as "dark" chocolate only. To further our exploration of these subtle differences, we will taste Vietnamese chocolate. Praised by connoisseurs, the cocoa beans from Vietnam come from several different regions of the country. Marou Chocolate is the main importer of Vietnamese chocolate to the United States, so we will explore similar beans being used by different chocolate makers and see what distinctions we can detect.

Our ticket this month includes of three 0.8 oz bars from Marou: Dong Nai 72%, Ben Tre 78%, and Ba Ria 76% for $10.00. Please also choose at least two additional bars from the list below to join the tasting.

BONUS! We are introducing Bibamba Chocolate from Denver, and participants of the October tasting will receive a free sample. Please visit them at Bibamba.com for further details on their Cameroon Trinitario chocolate with sweet plantain.
