Fjak – Lachuá, Guatemala 72% Dark Chocolate
Fjak crafts its small batch chocolate in the depths of Hardangerfjord in Norway. Making chocolate since 2015, it was only late 2017 that Agur and Siv officially launched Fjak. Those two years acted as the experimental stage, where Agur and Siv endeavoured on the pursuit of crafting great chocolate – from ethics to flavour – with the vision of making production scalable from the get go.
About the Beans
Fjak sources their Guatemalan beans from the Lachua cocoa farm, and they buy these beans directly through Cacao Verapaz (the Guatemalan leg of Uncommon Cacao). Cacao Verapaz works directly with fine cacao producers in Guatemala, and is the first specialty cacao exporter to ship containers of high-quality, centrally fermented cacao from Guatemala.
Cacao Verapaz currently partners with six smallholder farmer associations and two private estates to source high quality and centrally-fermented Guatemalan cacaos. One of the smallholder farmer associations includes Lachua, i.e. the beans that went into crafting this chocolate bar.
This 70% dark chocolate gifts an initial sweetness, that opens up to deeper notes of leather and coffee. During the melt, there’s a burst of fruity notes. Expect berries, apricots and plums.
