|Maker Comments||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. 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.|
|Comments||Quite palatable for 100% cacao.|
