  • Description

    Cocoa grower Bertil Åkesson’s father was a Swedish diplomat in Paris before starting a trading company. The family eventually settled in Madagascar in the 1970s and established a number of cocoa and spice plantation. Bertil is one of the true heroes of the bean to bar market; over the last decade he pioneered the direct sale of his single estate beans to newly emerging chocolate makers.

    Today bars made with his beans win prizes all over the world. This bar, crafted personally by Bertil in France, is an award winner too – and has the typical rich and fruity taste of a great Madagascan bar.

      Pretty good. Pleasant all round, but with an olive-oil texture somewhere around the middle which was just a touch bland. Did not linger too long (shame), but overall enjoyable.

      I really love this bar. Nice and sweet berry notes with a lemony aftertaste, I can't help but reach for more chocolate! Certainly a strong roasted cocoa flavour with the right amount of sweetness, making the chocolate very satisfying. The first Akesson's bar I've tried and I look forward to trying the others.
