Reasons to Love

Made with Estate Grown Cacao

Tree to Bar

Feeling adventurous today? The flavor notes of bright red berries (what they've come to expect from Madagascar) is paired with a rare hand picked wild pepper, making for a mildly spicy chocolate with notes of clove and coffee. It's definitely a chocolate experience like no other, so it also comes as no surprise that this bar has won multiple awards for its unique flavor over the years.

This chocolate has a very expressive cocoa aroma with subtle fruity-sweet tartness and pleasant flavor notes that evoke citrus and red berries. They combined it with the finest and rarest pepper, the voatsiperifery from Madagascar, whose earthy and woody taste is completed by intense flowery aromas bringing freshness to the palate.

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

Sambirano Valley, Madagascar

Perhaps the most famous growing region in the world, northern Madagascar's Sambirano Valley is known for its incredibly fruity cacao and aromatic herbs & spices. Over the past few decades three main plantations have popped up in the area to supply cacao to chocolate makers around the world, as well as some of the world's most valuable botanicals, namely vanilla, ylang-ylang, and essential oil extracts.

This is my second favorite from Akesson's pepper offerings with black pepper being my favorite. If you enjoy dark chocolate with floral pepper kick try it

Too peppery

I love the taste of the peppers, but it simply overpowers the chocolate. If the amount of pepper were reduced by half or so it would be an excellent chocolate bar.

Carrie K.
My favorite chocolate of all

Having lived seven years in Madagascar, I'm a fan of Madagascar chocolates. I'm also a huge fan of the pairing of peppercorn with chocolate. I've tried every chocolate/peppercorn combo I've found, and for me, this one is my favorite. Voatsiperifery is a uniquely fruity, citrusy and aromatic peppercorn and it pairs perfectly with the Madagascar dark chocolate. I did a taste-testing of the three Akessons peppercorn chocolates with several friends and we all liked this one the best (closely followed by the pink peppercorn one).
