  • Description

    This dark chocolate bar has been crafted using a single Nicaraguan bean by Friis Holm in Denmark. Friis-Holm has done a lot for craft chocolate today, but before any award-winning chocolate had been made, Mikkel’s journey started with an ever-growing passion for fine chocolate. This eventually led him to Central America, where he fully immersed himself in a project that aimed to identify and evaluate DNA strands of Nicaraguan cacao. Discovering this new profile of cacao became motivation for Mikkel to fulfil his long time interest, thus, Friis-Holm, the Danish bean-to-bar chocolate manufacturer, was born. Still today, genetics of cacao is very important to Mikkel, which means constantly working with cocoa farmers and suppliers, such as Ingemann Fine Cocoa, to ensure Friis-Holm chocolate gets the varieties of cacao with the highest-flavour potential.

    Still today, genetic information is as-ever important to Friis-Holm, particularly the specific phenotypes. The maker prides itself in being one of the few worldwide to pay such attention and focus on single varietal chocolate bars.

    This bar takes its name from the cocoa from which it is made: Medagla. The pods on this particular tree are yellow ‘medal’ shaped fruits. This rare breed is packed with intense taste. It is at first savoury with a melange of baked fruit notes.

    This Medagla dark chocolate gifts notes of strawberries and sweet biscuits, amongst the buttery texture that is signature of Friis Holm. There is a strong cocoa body, which makes for a mellow and warming finish.
