akessons organic brazil chocolate
A beautifully rich and complex dark chocolate, made with Forastero cacao from the Fazenda Sempre Firme plantation in Brazil. Expect a deep and brooding chocolate with a fruity tang.

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. They 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 there the traditional and astonishing Forastero cocoa variety called “parasinho” that made the glory of Bahia at the beginning of the 20th century.
