Akesson's - No-Sugar Dark Chocolate - Madagascar 100%
Certified Organic – Located in the Sambirano Valley, near Ambanja, in the North-West of Madagascar, Bertil Åkesson’s estate spreads over about 2000 ha and is divided into smaller plantations like Ambolikapiky. Today bars made with his beans win prizes all over the world. Wonderful berry notes burst forth from this incredibly intense chocolate. A natural sweetness that you might not expect to find in a bar with such a high percentage of cacao.
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. It has a very expressive cocoa aroma with subtle fruity-sweet tartness and pleasant flavour notes that evoke citrus and red berries.
