LUISA ABRAM CHOCOLATE | RIO TOCANTINS 81%
Luisa Abram chocolate is made with extremely rare cacao that grows wild in the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest. It is harvested by riverside communities that preserve the fruit's native trees. Each river represents a region with a different flavour profile.
This Luisa Abram chocolate bar has 81% cocoa of wild origin from the the Rio Tocantins region in the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest.
In partnership with the riverside communities, Luisa carried out her first fermentation in this origin. Teaching the riverside community how to ferment the cocoa, which was facilitated by their existing familiarity with the cocoa culture. This has translated into an increase in the families' income since well-fermented cocoa is sold for two to three times as much as unfermented cocoa.
The communities that live on the banks of the Tocantins River, a river with a well-defined course located on the Lower Amazon River Basin, survive by harvesting açaí, cocoa and fishing.
This cocoa is harvested on the banks of the Tocantins River, in the city of Mocajuba, in Pará.
Luisa Abram's RIO TOCANTINS 81% chocolate bar starts off with a liqueur sweet flavor with hints of spice aroma. Then blossoms into citric notes and ends with tannins reminiscent of a good glass of red wine.
