This chocolate is Mikkel’s first flavoured bar, with the hazelnuts contrasting with the light acidity of Nicaraguan cacao and complementing the butteriness of Friis Holm chocolate. An absolute delight.
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 50% milk chocolate 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.
