  • Description

    This 81% vintage bar is from our first Brazilian maker, Luisa Abram. Luisa and her family use wild cacao sourced from small cooperatives in the upper basin of the Amazon. To the beans they add nothing but a little organic sugar, giving the true flavour of Amazonian cacao. 

    Along with Fresco’s selection, this is also one of the first vintage bars to join our chocolate library. The concept of vintage chocolate adds yet another layer to our understanding of what impacts the flavour in chocolate. Much like a fine red wine, the tannins in dark chocolate can age and develop a bar’s flavour profile, enhancing and transforming the taste. You can now try bars from a single maker which are made in the exact same way, with the same cocoa percentage, from the same estate within the same origin, with the only difference being the year in which the beans were harvested. You’ll be amazed at the difference in flavour that this seemingly subtle change will make to the chocolate that you taste.

    Much like Luisa’s 70% vintage, we tasted similar hints of spice and liquorice but that extra 11% packs more of a punch. The malted molasses provides more of a backdrop in this bar. Instead, sharp green floral notes unfold as the bar melts.
