    TASTING NOTES

    This 55% dark milk chocolate is sweet and creamy. During the melt, the flavour reveals delicate notes of molasses, butter biscuits and coffee.

    ABOUT THE MAKER

    Fredrik and Ulrika think of the summer of 2013 as their “vacation that never ended”. While making a coffee stop in the small Swedish village of Österlen, they happened upon the 19th-century red brick school building that housed the Österlenchoklad confectionery factory – and it was for sale. They quit their jobs, bought the factory, and moved 600km to the southern Swedish countryside, where they established their bean-to-bar chocolate company, Svenska Kakaobaloget – “The Swedish Cacao Company”.

    THE BEANS

    The beans for this bar are sourced from Öko Caribe, a prominent cocoa supplier in the Dominican Republic and one of the most popular in the world. The two owners, Adriano de Jesus Rodriguez and Gualberto Acebey Torrejon, maintain close relationships with their farmers, often giving out loans for family emergencies and community needs. They also educate their farmers about sustainable land management and environmental responsibility, and pay consistent premiums for the farmers’ award-winning cocoa.

      Has hints of sour cream/creme fraiche. I love this but was a bit taken aback by the sour note when I first tasted it. Once I got used to it I began to love it and didn't want to put it down. Lovey texture and lovely look. Nice!

      Starts off very earthy but has a honey flavoured "second wave"
