Try to notice the texture of your chocolate. Is it smooth? Gritty? Is there texture? Rub your fingers on the chocolate and feel it.
Some chocolates that are silkier have more cocoa butter in them and those that have a rough feel might have been stone-ground.
When you snap the chocolate in two, we don't often think about it, but it gives us a peek as to how the chocolate was tempered.
Cocoa has more than 600 aroma compounds that range from bright, tart berries to sweet floral noted.
You'll be stormed by scents as you open your chocolate bar and even more so when it melts on your tongue and wafts through your nose and the back of your throat.
