This 70% dark chocolate bar, and Gold award winner 2018, is crafted by Brazilian chocolate maker, Luisa Abram. Luisa and her family use wild cacao sourced from small cooperatives in the upper basin of the Amazon. To the beans they add nothing but a little organic sugar, giving the true flavour of Amazonian cacao.
The bar comes in two 40g individual squares, ideal for sharing or for simply savouring the bar.
On first taste, we instantly fell in love with this chocolate. The flavour profile of this bar is foremost chocolatey, with then a hazelnut-edge. It is a bar that one can only describe as a chocolate brownie, with both its rich flavour and fudgy texture. Its aroma hits immediately with intensely chocolatey, fresh bread and warm treacle notes. The thicker mouth texture of this bar lends itself to a slow melt, making the enjoyment of the bar last for that little bit longer.
