Friis Holm

Friis Holm is a multiple award winning chocolate maker in Denmark. A trained chef by profession, the founder Mikkel Friis-Holm has owned a restaurant, a bakery, and then became a distributor for Scharffen Berger chocolate in Scandinavia. This passion for chocolate evolved into a deeper interest, and lead to the formation of a chocolate company in 2008. Friis Holm has a very particular approach when crafting his bars. All of his chocolate bars are kept the same, from the origin, the bean type, roast and percentage, except for one key difference during the refining process; the number of times the cocoa beans are turned. Resulting in dramatically different tasting notes in the chocolate bars. Give Friis Holm a try and taste the experience for yourself!

Cacao Region

Lake Managua, Nicaragua

Lake Managua, also known as Lake Xolotlán, is a lake in western Nicaragua. Momotombo Volcano is on the lake’s northwestern shore, while the city of Managua, the Nicaraguan capital, lies along its southern shore. Lake Managua has been described by some authors as the most contaminated lake in Central America; it’s been severely polluted by decades of sewage being dumped into it from the city. Cacao has been grown in the region around the lake for millennia, however, and most of the fine flavor cacao sourced from the region is of the criollo varietal known as Chuno.

Cacao Strain


Chuno happens to be a mixed hybrid, shown to have genetic heritage of roughly one-quarter criollo, one-half amelonado, and one-quarter mixed amongst the other clusters. It also has a relatively small but strong growing region, found growing semi-wild in northern Nicaragua. Chuno is one of just sixteen cacaos to be certified by the Heirloom Cacao Preservation Initiative, an initiative of the Fine Chocolate & Cacao Institute. The HCP identifies ancient & indigenous cacao varietals which hold significant historic, cultural, botanical, geographical, and flavor value for the global industry, which the very fruity chuno cacao does.

Unique, well balanced bar with excellent texture

I placed a large order of award winning bars from multiple makers at the same time, and this was a group favorite. This bar hits with citrus and stone fruit notes and a creamy, smooth texture. It then transitions to a pleasant olive aftertaste paired with a spice like quality that lingers. The texture is excellent, above average for me even among other international award winners.

Friis Holm - Superlative

The intense and full flavors of all the Friis Holm bars I have had are wonderous. The double turned Chuno is no exception. I think the ability Friis Holm has that sets them apart is the ability to produce bars that highlight the different tastes of the different beans they use. Buy and enjoy.
