Luisa Abram - Rio Jari Wild Cocoa 2017 Harvest

Description

This 70% dark chocolate is another fantastic bar from our first Brazilian 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 cocoa from this bar is a wild cocoa sourced from the Rio Jari region, and formed part of the 2017 harvest.
This bar has a green, almost earthy aroma, but the flavour is most unexpected.  A sharply astringent dark chocolate, strong honey notes with a hint of hazlenuts.  We detected a richly indulgent cocoa finish and some toasty malted notes.
