This dark chocolate bar has been crafted using a single Nicaraguan bean – one of the rarest on the planet.

Mikkel Friis Holm is passionate about the genetics of cacao. He has been committed to isolating the genetics of cacao since he first got involved in Nicaraguan plantations back in 2008. One of the cacaos that Mikkel helped to define was Barba – the bean that he uses in this single bean 70% dark chocolate bar. Many makers make bars that hail from a single region of a country, but with this bar, Mikkel has gone one further – this is one a series of bars that Mikkel has crafted from cacao of a single genetic variety.

Barba is one of the rarest cacao varietals in the world. In the whole of Nicaragua (and possibly the world), there are perhaps only 100 trees growing the Barba varietal. This is an exceptional bar. At first bite, it has the same rich, creamy texture and even melt that we have come to expect from Friis Holm chocolate. Then as it melts, a bright, bold flavour bursts forth. This bar is spicy, not bitter, with black pepper emerging toward the middle of the melt, before leaving a rich, buttery finish.
