Single-Origin Chocolate from the Akesson Plantation in Madagascar. This growing region’s trees are derived from Venezuelan stock, but due to terroir and processing, has a remarkably different flavor. There are strong criollo genetics in some of the trees on this plantation and along with them come typical characteristics found in very criollo-ish cacao, including light seeds and a wonderful, complex flavor profile. It has been carefully roasted, ground, refined, and conched to perfection in small batches. Bright flavors of plums, citrus, berry, and cedar.
