DESCRIPTION:

Bertil Akesson and his Brazilian partner Dr. Angelo Calmon de Sa are growing the traditional and astonishing Forastero cocooa variety called “parasinho” that made the glory of Bahia at the beginning of the 20th century. The chocolate we developed from these beans is smooth, woody and earthy. It also has expressive notes that evoke autumn scents, tobacco and the local piganta fruit.

Tasting Notes: The most approachable 100% bar yet. The added cacao butter mellows out the flavor and gives it a great mouth feel. On the opposite end of astringency of the Madagascar 100% that most are familiar with.

Ingredients: 100% cocoa: cocoa beans, cocoa butter, cocoa nibs 7%. May contain traces of nuts, almonds, milk and gluten.

Akesson's

Akesson's founded by Bertil Akesson is largely responsible for some of the super fine cacao we see coming from Madagascar. Bertil manages several estates in the Sambirano Valley, and also has a few plantations in Indonesia and Brazil. Bertil is one of the pioneers of the bean to bar chocolate movement, and produces a line of single origin and inclusion bars using the spices that also grow on his plantations. Akesson's focuses on high quality cocoa while maintaining sustainable practices. Not only has Akesson's won many awards, other chocolate makers have also won awards for their bars with Akesson's cacao.

Amazing 100% bar

super smooth and fruity. No strong bitter tannin after notes, nor is it chalky. A very smooth melt. My favorite 100% yet!
