Since I suspect the Spanish variety is less cacao content, I'm going to start with it in terms of drinking. It has a very smooth taste, not overly sweet or bitter, the recommended ingredients were perfectly balanced for my mouth. There is a slightly earthy aftertaste that reminds me of single origin chocolate bars. The Black variety has a more bitter and deeper cocoa scent even if it looks identical in the cups. The taste is definitely more bitter and has an almost coffee like edge to it with a cocoa aftertaste that reminds me of 75% or higher chocolate bars. If you are used to strong cocoa or coffee, go for the Black but if you like a creamier hot chocolate then select the Spanish version.
Hot chocolate isn't a great trick or treating idea, is it? If the parents of all those kids showing up at your door don't want you to hand out apples, imagine how much less they want their kids sipping something you hand them. There is also nothing particularly Halloween about this product but the company wanted to submit it to our Challenge. You could use it for a Halloween party with either kids, adults, or both but making large quantities of hot beverages can be a bit tricky. Instead this is more a small group or individual drink that you could have in place of coffee.
Indonesia is one of the major producers of cocoa beans in the world, ranking number two in the latest 2012 numbers I could find. (1) Currently they are quickly approaching the 20% mark for world cacao growth and this makes their products and their farming techniques important to us all. Encouraging local Indonesians to use their own cocoa beans and create their products for sale locally, regionally, and internationally could have two effects. They may choose to follow the old European model that didn't care very much about how the cocoa was grown only that it got into consumers hands. They might choose a more sustainable route that environmental and workers rights group are promoting. Which way they go will in large part be decided by you and I as consumers, Sisters and Brothers.
