This milk chocolate bar has been crafted using a blend of Nicaraguan beans from a co-operative in Waslala, in the nature reserve in the mountains of northeastern Nicaragua. Within is sansho pepper. Sansho, also known as Japanese pepper, is an aromatic shrub belonging to the citrus and rue family.
This bar is a creamy, fragrant and a fruity milk chocolate, which works perfectly with the delicate spice of the sansho.
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.
