tasting notes: cherry yogurt, honey, and fresh citrus
These nuanced, bright-red beans come from Bertil Akesson’s Bejofo Estate. Bertil dries the beans with an especially quick method—on concrete beds under the hot Madagascar sun — that retains acidity and results in a strong, fruity punch. The exact fruit flavor of the beans we buy from Bertil can vary from season to season, harvest to harvest, even roast to roast.
The intense flavors naturally present in this cocoa changed the way Lead Chocolate Maker Nate thinks of chocolate! For his second Ambanja bar, he balances the origin’s characteristic dairy and fruit notes, allowing subtler flavors to shine.
