The credit has to go to the grower of this cacao plantation. Bertil Akesson’s family has been growing cacao since the 1920’s when Bertil’s father settled in Madagascar after traveling the world and starting a trading company.
The terroir, careful and consistent processing techniques and criollo genetics of this cacao in the northwest sector of Madagascar lends to its incredibly red berry forward with a green fruit back flavor profile. This bar is like eating chocolate covered in raspberries without any actual raspberries.
