This intense dark chocolate experiences highs of apricot and raisin before a round finish with hints of banana.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Fjak crafts its small-batch chocolate in the depths of Hardangerfjord in Norway. Agur and Siv started making chocolate in 2015, but it was only in 2017 – after much experimenting and fine-tuning their processes – that they launched to immediate success. They’ve swept the board since then, picking up awards galore with their unique Nordic-inspired flavour combinations and exquisite single-origin dark and milk bars.
The beans for this bar were sourced from Kokoa Kamili in the Kilombero Valley, Tanzania. Kokoa Kamili has been paying premium prices for wet cocoa since 2015, saving farmers the tasks of fermentation and drying and adding enormous value to their cocoa beans. In the height of harvest season, Kokoa Kamili employs 50 people from their village, and has set up a scholarship fund for local girls to go to the nearby secondary school.
