Admittedly, the delicate Persian rose petals and perfect pieces of tart, dried raspberries scattered across this handmade 70% dark chocolate pack an extra punch thanks to the delectable bed upon which they lay. Josh Bahen roasts, cracks, winnows, stone grinds, conches and ages his exotic cacao beans in very small batches using vintage mechanical machinery and a ridiculous attention to detail that is evident at first bite. It’s every dementor’s nightmare.
