Luisa Abram is known for venturing into the Brazilian Amazon in search of the region's many native cacao varietals, and then turning those cacaos into amazing single-region chocolates. This 70% dark chocolate bar was crafted from wild cocoa from the Rio Purus region of the Brazilian Amazon. It has distinct notes of burnt sugar and woody cocoa, with complex florality and sweet spices emerging near the end.

Ingredients: Wild Cocoa and Organic Sugar.

Maker

Luisa Abram

Luisa Abram is a bean to bar chocolate maker in Brazil. The maker Luisa, works with micro-lots of wild growing cocoa from the Amazon rain forest along the floodplains near riverside communities. Luisa has partnered with the locals to create job opportunities, help preserve native cacao and improve their quality of life. All the bars are made in small batches in Sao Paulo, with only two pure and organic ingredients: cocoa and sugar.

Cacao Region

Acre, Brazil

Acre is a state located in the center of the Amazon Rainforest, in northwest of Brazil, bordering both Bolivia and Peru. Intense extractive activity in the rubber industry, which reached its height in the early 20th century, attracted Brazilians from many regions to the state, though it remains one of the least populated. Agriculture beyond the subsistence level is uncommon in Acre; almost all of the cacao harvested in the region comes from wild-growing native varietals collected by local indigenous peoples.

Cacao Strain

Purús

Purús is one of those ten evolutionarily unique types identified in 2008, using samples collected throughout the Americas over the previous century. Samples proven to be of the purús genetic cluster were collected from trees growing wild along the banks of Brazil’s Upper Amazon rivers, including the Rio Purús, after which the cluster is named. Pure examples of purús in modern chocolate express as floral and herbal; but they’re exceedingly rare, as the cacao is almost always wild-harvested from the Brazilian Amazon, the same region as the original samples were collected decades before.

Purus Wild 70%

Very good but a little mild for me for 70%. Well balanced but I prefer a stronger flavor. I liked the 81% Rio Acari’ better.
