This dark chocolate bar has been crafted using a rare cacao from Nicaragua.
The Indio Rojo bean is a hybrid varietal of cacao, and perhaps the nearest we can get to tasting gate cacao that was enjoyed by the ancient Mayans. Cacao genetics is important to Mikkel Friis Holm, and in this bean he found a cacao that combines varietals from Honduras and Guatemala.
As with so many of Mikkel’s bars, this is a luscious treat. As it melts away, floral notes spring forth. There are hints of lilac and rose, which then evolve into a honeyed finish. Another delicious bar from this Danish master chocolate maker.
