Luisa Abram Wild Jurua

A special and rare new chocolate made by Luisa Abram and her family in Brazil. Luisa focuses on wildly grown, hand harvested and hard-to-find old varieties of cacao. This very rare bar is carried by only a few stores in the US and it’s proceeds go to support the five families who are harvesting it along the Wild Juruá river. This bar is very fruity and floral with a touch of tannin on the finish.

Each bar is a consistent 75% cacao, illustrating how bean variety and origin, not just percentage, play a big role in developing flavor.
