MISSION Chocolate Limited Edition Amazon 70% Dark Bar

60 gram bar - Sao Paulo, Brazil

Arcelia's first chocolate bar made with cacao from the Brazilian Amazon rainforest. The notes of this bar are very distinct from all the cocoa that comes from Bahia, a very pleasant surprise.

This bar has a much fruitier profile than bars made from cacao of the Brazilian Atlantic Rainforest. The Amazon is a vast and still relatively wild region, and chocolate makers have just recently begun sourcing cacao beans from there.

This is a creamy bar that screams fruit, fruit, fruit - and provides a moderately complex flavor. It opens with bright, acidic fruit notes reminiscent of raspberries, cherries, and pineapple all mixed together. There’s a creamy nut butter foundation that brings all of this together. The flavors become a little more floral at the end, with hints of jasmine and orange blossom, were the aftertaste is more distictly orange and jasmine.

This is a unique and fun bar that is perfect if you like fruity chocolate with mild acidity. This is Mission’s first bar with beans from the Amazon and is a limited edition that may not be made again as there are many substantial challenges with sourcing cacao bean from the Amazon.

From Arcelia: "In the last 5 years that I have been living in Brazil, I have dedicated my chocolate production to working with cacao from Bahia because Bahia is a cacao producing, well-oiled machine.  Always reliable and dependable. The opposite of what occurs in the Amazon Rainforest. Cocoa producers are always at a risk of harsh weather and travel delays, making cocoa production quality a coin toss, and storing and shipping cocoa unpredictable. I have been lucky enough to acquire this amazing cocoa from the Amazon but the saddest part is that there is no clear answer (guraentee) if I will ever have access to it again, and if I do, if it will be the same quality. So please enjoy while it lasts!"
