Luisa Abram – 81% Amazonia Brasileira
By Luisa Abram
This 81% dark chocolate is the first bar of 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.
A darker version of their 70% – we detected similar hints of spice and liquorice but with a great deal intensity. The treacle and burnt sugar flavours are more muted in this bar.

The melt of this bar is slow. Unhurried, the flavour builds. First an earthiness, then the dark fruits and liquorice. Slowly melting away with a slight astringency and lingering taste. The same qualities are there as in the wonderful 70% bar, but here they seem blended into a long, meandering flavour journey. Quite a different experience. It is a small bar, but a corner is all that’s required to enjoy its delights, so it has lasted for several days. A bar to be savoured not devoured.
