Madagascar's Sambirano Valley produces some of the most flavorful cacao in the world. Daily harvests from a single 600 hectare plantation are fermented six days to develop a signature fruitiness. Our light drum roast develops and enhances this cacao's fruity character. Days of stone grinding achieve a silky texture. Next, the chocolate is heated, mixed and aerated, this is conching. Our medium conche step mellows some of this cacao's raw acidic nature, resulting in a chocolate with complex flavors including notes of citrus, reminiscent of grapefruit.

Maker

Fresco

Fresco is a small craft chocolate maker in Lynden, Washington. The founder of Fresco, Rob Anderson, releases several combinations of roasting and conch profiles to create different variation bars from the same beans. Anderson, originally a computer scientist, took a trip to Washington and visited a chocolate shop and took a tour which initially sparked his chocolate interest. Since then, Anderson created his own machines to make small batches of test chocolate. While only using three ingredients for his bars; cacao beans, cane sugar and cacao butter, Fresco’s flavor range is uniquely diverse. He chose the name Fresco meaning fresh in Italian, which could translate into fresh taste, fresh ideas, or a fresh approach to chocolate making.

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.

Nutty and citrusy

This bar is nutty and citrusy with notes of toffee and milk. I'd describe the citrus as being most akin to orange, though the product description mentions grapefruit.
