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.

Cacao Region

Bahia, Brazil

Bahia is one of the largest states of Brazil, located in the east, along the Atlantic coast. Once a monarchial stronghold dominated by slave-centric agriculture and ranching, Bahia is now a domestic manufacturing center and the focal point of Brazil’s re-entry into the fine cacao market. The region was once the largest cacao producer in the country, so reputed that a portion of southern Bahia was nicknamed “Cacao Coast.” Unfortunately, bioterrorism in the 1980’s devastated the country’s crop over the course of just a decade. In the early 2010’s, a number of family farms took it upon themselves to revitalize the local fine flavor cacao industry, which continues to grow annually.

Cacao Estate

Fazenda Sempre Firme

Brazil’s southern state of Bahia is known within the country as the cacao capitol, and for good reason— more than half the country’s cacao is grown in Bahia alone. This is part of the reason why, in April 2009, chocolate maker Bertil Akesson purchased Bahia’s historic Fazenda Sempre Firme. The 120-hectare cocoa plantation is right in the middle of the Mata Atlantica, one of the rain forests with the highest biodiversity on earth. On the farm, the team is growing the traditional forastero cocoa variety called parasinho, which was thought of as the glory of Bahia in the early 1900’s.

It is one of the first bars I purchased on Bar & Cocoa and I do not regret it. It is very pleasant and I would love to try again!
