TASTING NOTES

This fruity Madagascan dark chocolate is as one might expect from a Madagascar-origin chocolate bar. Fruity and incredibly jammy. Expect citrus notes with red berries.

ABOUT THE MAKER

Encuentro’s co-founder Candice discovered the beauty of chocolate in 2008, when she lived in the Dominican Republic for a year. She and her partner, Antonie, set up their first chocolate factory in 2012 in Punta Cana, DR, which put them in close proximity to their cocoa producers and allowed them to become a hub of chocolate tourism. They returned to their home country of France a year later, and re-established a thriving chocolate factory in the suburbs of Paris in 2016. Now they’ve come full circle, having last year moved their factory to Lille, where Antonie and Candice first met.

THE BEANS

These beans hail from the Bejofo Estate in the Sambirano Valley, Ambanja District of Madagascar. Bejofo Estate is an organic cacao orchard that is one of four estates in the Akesson’s Estate, managed by Bertil Akesson.

This bar was featured in our November 2020 subscription box. You can see what Spencer and Mika had to say about it in the video below:

    Starts off quite intense but melts nicely into a lovely sweet aftertaste
