Maker

Fruition Chocolate

Fruition Chocolate was created in 2011 by Bryan Graham located in Shokan, NY. Graham, was always interested in pastry as a young boy and has worked his way as a pastry chef. Over the years, Fruition is keen on exceptional attention to detail from the calibration of ingredients, packaging, and appearance of the bar (mold, snap, color) make them one of our top bean to bar craft chocolate makers in the world. Fruition has won many awards for their bars over the years, including ‘Best in Competition” Fruition was one of the first bean to bar makers to experiment with new concepts such as bourbon-barrel aging and creating bars with just two ingredients.

Cacao Region

Alto Beni River, Bolivia

The Beni River Valley in northern Bolivia is home to the river of the same name, north of the Bolivian capital of La Paz. Upstream, far beyond the main cities, cacao grows wild along the upper part of the Beni River, there called the “Alto Beni.” Locals often travel along the water in boats, stopping every once in a while to collect fresh pods from the trees; that practice has earned Alto Beni’s harvest the nickname “wild cacao.” This is one of the southernmost places that cacao is grown in the Americas.

Cacao Strain

Beniano

The native wild-grown cacao of Bolivia, Beniano is perhaps better known as nacional de Bolivia or even cacao silvestre. That’s because this strain grows wild along the upper part of the Río Bení in northern Bolivia; locals collect pods via canoe, as they ripen. The further south you go, the more indigenous genetic material the fruits tend to contain. Beniano have relatively small pods, meaning less yield per fruit, and a sweet, nutty, and fruity flavor. The overall rich and balanced character of the beans means that even slight changes in fermentation or roasting can cause a huge difference in the final taste of a product, resulting in an overall crowd-pleasing cacao.

Smooth and a tad tart

This bar has a very smooth mouth feel and melts beautifully on the tongue. It has a bit of tartness to it and a bit of a “rough tongue” finish. The flavors linger on, which is delightful. I really like the fresh, modern packaging on this particular bar as well!

Balanced and delicious

This bar has a lot going for it. It's super creamy with a solid cocoa backbone. I would describe it as nutty with a little spice, a little tang, and even a tiny hint of funk. I would definitely recommend trying this one while it's available.

Fruition Wild Bolivian Dark 74%

From the beginning of the tasting experience till the end, it exhibits deliciously fudgy mouthfeel and chewy brownie-like flavor with sophisticated sweet glycyrrhizin licorice undertones. Enthralling, while refreshing tangy dark fruits notes flow sluggishly across the palate... I recommend enjoying this Fruition Wild Bolivia several times... It is not the best wild bolivia on the market though. Lately, I tasted some great wild bolivia with a more harmonious flavor profile.
