The very best chocolate truffles for Valentine’s Day – Jama Cocoa

I’m not talking Hershey’s here; I’m talking fair and sustainable, single origin, melt-in-your-mouth chocolate truffles. If you are considering chocolates for your very special loved one who craves and understands fine chocolate you should be thinking Jama Cocoa. Based in Baltimore, Jama Cocoa patrons can order on-line (credit card and bitcoin) and the locals have the choice to visit their shop in Arbutus, sit down and enjoy one or all six single origin truffles and/or hot cocoa. Also available now is a limited offer Valentine's Day chocolate hearts.

With single origin chocolates the cacao bean comes from one specific region in the world, not a mix blend sourced from i.e. Hawaii and from Madagascar. Each specific region has its own distinctive flavors, picking up notes from fruits and berries, nuts, coffee that grow within that region. These hand-crafted truffles are made to melt in your mouth. I took three small bites out of each of the truffles at Jama Cocoa and let them melt slowly in my mouth, relishing the super smooth texture and the notes of flavors from each of the six single-origin chocolate truffle.
