Åkessons is known for many international chocolate awards, and this 75% chocolate bar is no exception. The bar Åkessons Brazil 75% 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.
Smooth in texture, with woody and earthy flavors. Specifically, tobacco and tropical fruit notes can be found.
