In Madagascar, in the Sambirano valley (the most famous cocoa valley) is the Ambolikapiky plantation where Bertil Akesson sustainably cultivates a high quality Trinidadian cocoa.
The intense black pepper from Madagascar provides a counterpoint to this aromatic cocoa.
This bar provides notes of citrus, red fruits, caramel, cocoa, a light touch of smoked and toasted, as well as the characteristic softness of Creole cocoas, but nuanced by the intensity of the pepper that is constant throughout the tasting.
