    ABOUT THE MAKER

    Mikkel Friis-Holm’s craft chocolate journey started with an ever-growing passion for fine chocolate. This eventually led him to Central America, where he immersed himself in a project that aimed to identify and evaluate DNA strands of Nicaraguan cocoa beans. He then pivoted from sourcing to making, and Friis Holm, the Danish craft chocolate maker, was born. Mikkel is still fascinated with genetics, and ensures he chooses the best varieties with the highest flavour potential.

    THE BEANS

    The ‘Lazy Cocoa Growers Blend’ is anything but. Mikkel Friis Holm has used beans from 10 different growers in the Matagalpa region of Nicaragua. The ‘lazy’ farmer haven’t sorted the beans into different varietals prior to fermentation. With old cacao trees, cross-pollination often means you will have a mix of different pod varietals growing on neighbouring trees and even on the same tree. Sorting these out would be incredibly labour intensive for the farmers, and take up a huge amount of valuable time. Instead the beans are fermented together and Friis Holm has then crafted a bar with all of these together.
