DesBarres Ambanja, Madagascar 85%

Desbarres

$8.00   

The beans for this rich and delicious bar come from the Bejofo Plantation, part of the 2000 acre Akesson’s Estate in northwest Madagascar. This estate, run by Bertil Akesson, and started by his father, has been producing fine cacao and spices for a generation. 

This 85% bar is a blockbuster of flavour. Powerful and unruly in the bean, it takes time to tame the wilder notes during processing. The end result is pure chocolate flavour seen through a kaleidoscope of red fruits. This is a bold bar with complex flavours.  

This 38 gram bar is an Academy of Chocolate Silver (2018) and Bronze (2019) winner.
