Chocolate Room: featuring Chocopologie by Knipschildt Chocolatier "Rosewater" and Cacao Prieto 72%

I snagged two bars last time I was at the Chocolate Room.  Both were excellent.

Cacao Prieto is based in Red Hook, and they use only Crillollo beans from the Dominican Republic.  Their 72% bar had all the complexity one expects from crillollo beans and the good chocolatey taste from the DR. A very nice combo.

The Rosewater-flavored "Chocopologie by Knipschildt" bar was also delicious.  The rosewater is subtle, despite the bright red coloring on the bar, and it adds a nice flavor for those who like it.

Bottom Line: The Chocolate Room is amazing both for the desserts it makes and the stock of chocolate it carries.

  1. Knipschildt is apparently based in CT. I was recently in New Haven and there was a whole Knipschildt STORE except it was CLOSED. I tweeted about it @NYCChocolate with fervored disappointment.
