    Brazil- Fazenda Sempre Firme    

    .100% Forastero Fazenda Sempre Firme is a 120 ha cocoa plantation right in the middle of the Mata Atlantica, the wild forest with the highest biodiversity on earth. Bertil Akesson and his Brazilian partner Dr. Angelo Calmon de Sa were able to recreate a social structure and their best reward is to hear the community referring to the Fazenda as a “Paraiso”(paradise). They are growing the traditional and astonishing Forastero cocooa variety called “parasinho” that made the glory of Bahia at the beginning of the 20th century.  The chocolate we developed from these beans is smooth, woody and earthy. It also has expressive notes that evoke autumn scents, tobacco and the local piganta fruit.

    Located in the Sambirano Valley, near Ambanja, in the North-West of Madagascar, Bertil Åkesson’s estate spreads over about 2000 ha and is divided into smaller plantations like this Ambolikapiky. Since 1920, these farms produce world-famous aromatic cocoa and spices. In fact, our specially selected peper vines grow on the shade trees protecting the cocoa trees from the sun. We united these two exquisite products to make this fine spicy chocolate. In this subtle combination, the-fruity sweet tartness of the cocoa and its pleasant flavor that evoke red berries collide with warm notes of pine kernel and fresh hints of green fruits that are so characteristic of Madagascar black pepper.

Our bars are the first Bali Single Origin ever made in Europe. The cocoa is produced by the Sukrama family over 7 ha in the Melaya area in the western part of the island.

    This chocolate holds a caramelized flavor resulting from the use of natural sugar produced from the juice of coconut blossom, harvested by gently slicing the flower. Once collected, the nectars are kettle-boiled into a thick caramel and ground to a fine crystal. This sugar has one of the lowest glycemic index (3 times less than cane sugar). Using it for chocolate is not only an innovation but also a great and healthy match to our Balinese Fleur de Sel.
