For simple eating chocolate, how much cocao do you prefer?

I just got a Dagoba eclipse chocolate bar, which is nearly 90% cocao, and wow what a revelation.
I think I just discovered a new level of appreciation for chocolate.
Never been a chocolate lover -- and still not one -- but tasting a chocolate bar with this high percentage of cocao gives me a new appreciation of what chocolate can do to the senses.
What about you? How much cocoa do you prefer in a chocolate bar?
as much as they can cram in there ;)
have you had Sweetriot dark chocolate covered cacao nibs yet? if not, you *must* try them - go for the 70%. Trader Joe's also just introduced their own version, simply called Dark Chocolate Cocoa Nibs. they're the perfect snack for a lover of dark chocolate/high cacao content. warning though...they're extremely addictive!
I have to agree. The more, the better: I love the rich, bitter flavour of the cacao... so delicious, and the effect that it has on your mouth is fabulous.
Being a milk chocolate fan, 30-40%. Scharffen Berger's 40% milk chocolate is as dark as I can stand.
