Cacao Sampaka ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

My agenda was really to get croissants and butter from Echire

But the boutique next to it caught my undivided interest and attention.
After all, what is french butter compared to...


They were laid out like the finest jewels

Chocolate bars in so many flavors like rose & strawberry, pistachio, cinnamon & nutmeg, 
orange blossom, ceylon cinnamon, bergamot, jamaica pepper and gin tonic!

I like bite-size pieces so I got a small box to try

I paid ¥2160 for this 4-piece box of Xoconusco

And it was worth every yen!!!
The chocolate was bold, rich, super dark and luxurious.  

I was so impressed with the quality and flavor I googled Cacao Sampaka immediately and found out that Albert Adria, formerly of El Bulli and voted The World's Best Pastry Chef 2015, is one of the owners. No wonder so good!

I shall hoard next trip!
