Details

This Criollo 100% Chocolate Bar has a very expressive cocoa aroma with subtle fruity-sweet tartness and pleasant flavour notes that evoke citrus and red berries.

Since 1920, these farms produce world-famous aromatic cocoa and today most of the top chefs and chocolate makers around the world use cocoa from this estate. Besides 300 tons of Trinitario cocoa produced every year, a very limited quantity of Criollo beans – 2 tons per year – is harvested separately to make this chocolate.

Bertil Åkesson is one of the true heroes of the bean to bar market, pioneering the direct sale of his single estate beans to over three hundred chocolate makers all over the world. Today, bars made with his beans have won a long list of accolades and prizes all over the world, not least this lively and expressive single-origin bar. Awards for this bar include gold at the Great Taste awards, the European Chocolate Awards and the Academy of Chocolate Awards. This bar hails from Åkesson’s Ambolikapiky plantation in the celebrated cacao producing region of the Sambirano Valley, North-West of Madagascar, with many of the world’s best chocolate makers and chefs using cocoa from this estate.

Ingredients: Cocoa, organic cane sugar, pure organic cocoa butter, emulsifier (GMO-free soya lecithin)

May contain traces of nuts, almonds, milk, gluten & wheat.
