Friis Holm – Indio Rojo, Guatemala 70% Dark
By Friis Holm
As with so many of Mikkel’s bars, this is a luscious treat. As it melts away, floral notes spring forth. There are hints of lilac and rose, which then evolve into a honeyed finish. Another delicious bar from this Danish master chocolate maker.
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.
This dark chocolate bar has been crafted using a rare cacao from Nicaragua.
The Indio Rojo bean is a hybrid varietal of cacao, and perhaps the nearest we can get to tasting gate cacao that was enjoyed by the ancient Mayans. Cacao genetics is important to Mikkel Friis Holm, and in this bean he found a cacao that combines varietals from Honduras and Guatemala.
