TASTING NOTES

Made from Akesson beans from the Sambirano River Valley, this 72% cocoa bar has a typically Madagascan fruitiness, with high notes of citrus and yellow fruits. It has a smooth and creamy texture that works well with the tanginess of its flavour notes.

ABOUT THE MAKER

After a long and successful career at IBM, international jet-setter Chris Brennan briefly retired before deciding to pioneer the making of sourdough and other breads in his idyllic countryside bakery in Orford, Suffolk. About a decade later, he and his daughter Joanna decided to delve into crafting award-winning chocolate in their eponymous bakery situated on Pump Street, and have won numerous awards for both their chocolates and their innovative packaging.

THE BEANS

The beans in this bar are sourced from Bertil Akesson’s estate in Madagascar. Bertil’s beans are famous throughout the craft chocolate world, having produced countless award-winning bars and winning many awards themselves. They typically lend their bars a fruity flavour profile, and it’s an endless source of enjoyment for us to see all the new ways makers find to bring out their very best.

  1. Nettie Atkisson

    I prefer their Madagascar criollo. However this bar is fruity, citrus. Nice balance of acidity. Familiar Madagascar taste as many of the beans from Madagascar we taste in craft chocolate are from Akessons.

    Very nice.
