One for the fruit lovers! This 70% cocoa chocolate bar comes lined with pieces of crystallized cupuaçu (a ‘cousin’ of cacao). The chocolate used in this bar comes from the Tocantins River, Pará. It comes alive with crystallized cupuaçu, a traditional Amazonian ingredient. The initial aroma of this bar is almost Piña colada. The orange and lemon notes of cocoa are subtly complemented by the pieces of cupuaçu as if they were made for each other – the taste is fruity but it is not as overwhelming as the aroma.
Luisa Abram was started as a family company in 2014. The company has four partners - Luisa, who looks after tempering, moulding & wrapping of the bars, her father Andre, who does the roasting and grinding of the bars, his wife Miriam who looks after finance & logistics, while Andrea (Luisa’s older sister) who helps with legal advice.
They specialise in using cocoa that is collected wild from the Amazon Rain-forest, recognising that paying a fair price for cocoa incentivises preservation of the rain-forest. See more
