Enna Chocolate was named after it’s creator and owner, Enna Grazier. Her background was in anthropology and photography, but she always liked chocolate and she had a great interest in the flavor profiles and economy behind chocolate. I like how she says in this article that the flavor profiles in a bar can reveal the chocolate maker’s preference for how they roast their beans. Also that chocolate is like apples because in the grocery store you can find a variety of apples with a variety of flavors due to different seeds and trees the apples come from.
The cacao for this bar came from the municipality Wampusirpi in Honduras. This sounds very familiar… Oh yeah! Wm. Chocolate also made a bar with cacao from this area!
The bar smelled earthy and nutty. For the majority of my bite the bar tasted earthy, though midway some nutty notes developed along with a touch of astringency. Toward the end it tasted roasted. The texture was relatively smooth though a bit chalky. According to Enna’s website, the tasting notes are “toasted sweet biscuits, tobacco, milk, and a tantalizingly subtle tannin aftertaste.” I think the bloomed condition of the bar didn’t help.
I’m glad I finally tried a bar from a New Hampshire based chocolate maker! There don’t seem to be many chocolate makers in the New England part of the United States. Hopefully that number will change over time.
