Bonajuto 80% Dark Chocolate Bar

The dark side of unconched chocolate.

Bonajuto has been making chocolate in the baroque Sicilian town of Modica since 1880. By that time Gustav Lindt had perfected conching, the process that makes chocolate smooth. Nearly every European chocolate maker adopted it. Bonajuto didn’t. They continued to make unconched chocolate, the texture granular and crunchy in comparison.

Nowadays that texture has come somewhat back in fashion. A number of modern American chocolatiers, make chocolate in this style, but none of them have 130 years of practice like Bonajuto.

For this bar, they only use two ingredients: cocoa and sugar. The mixture never gets hot enough to melt the sugar crystals, which gives the chocolate its signature texture. 80% of the bar is pure cacao, the rest is sugar but the overall chocolate note is very sweet. The flavor is bright, fruity, with a slight bitter-nut note in the finish. For those who like their chocolate very full flavored.
