Cocoa grower Bertil Åkesson’s father was a Swedish diplomat in Paris before starting a trading company and traveling the world. The family eventually settled in Madagascar in the 1970s and took over various plantations on the island.
Today, the Åkesson family owns cocoa plantations in Brazil and Bali and Madagascar, where they also grow the a variety of peppers. This bar is flavoured with pink peppercorns which add subtle flavour to the fruity and tart Madagascan Trinitario cocoa more than they add heat. It’s an exotic, warming chocolate experience that we think everyone should try.
