Åkessons is known for many international chocolate awards, and this 55% chocolate bar is no exception. This chocolate bar is crafted with cacao from the variety called “parasinho”, which made the Bahia region in Brazil famous for chocolate.
In April 2009, Bertil Åkesson and his Brazilian partner Dr. Angelo Calmon de Sa, purchased the historic Fazenda Sempre Firme in Bahia, Brazil. This 120 ha cocoa plantation is right in the middle of the Mata Atlantica, the wild forest with the highest biodiversity on earth.
The chocolaty notes of these beans are perfect for a high cocoa content milk chocolate.
