70% Dark chocolate made with two different Brazilian cacao beans. One side is chocolatey, cocoa, brownie, while the other side is bright, citrus, and creamy.
The name Two Rivers: Rio Negro + Rio Solimões comes from my boat ride on the Amazon River in the Amazon Rainforest. There is an intersection where these two rivers meet and maintain separate for miles.
It is fascinating to ride a boat, on these two rivers and see them side by side at first, then merge into one. Two visually different rivers coming together to create the largest and most forceful river in the world. For me, this is Brazil – many origins coming together, many languages, many cultures, and many flavors that eventually came to be known as one Brazil.
The beliefs of Brazilian chocolate have shifted in the last few years and this chocolate bar is proof that Brazilian cocoa and Brazilian chocolate cannot be easily categorized or compartmentalized. I love this chocolate bar because it is the extreme of what Brazil has to offer; one side of the chocolate has flavor notes of brownie, cocoa, and chocolate cake, while the other side could not be more different. The reddish part is all creamy citrus. The red tones come from the Catongo cacao, a variety that lacks the dark pigment you normally find in other cacao that makes chocolate dark.
