Levenger Cocoa Mini Review


This is the fifth review in my series on Levenger inks and my first mini review. This mini review will have only one writing sample instead of the usual three, and my thoughts on the ink will be written, not typed. When I come back from Europe in late July, I will be sure to revisit Cocoa for a full, in-depth review.

I was in no way compensated for this review, and this review contains my honest opinions about the ink.
