I ordered this bar through Cocoa Runners after seeing it shared once on Instagram, and suddenly Luisa Abram seems to be exploding everywhere! One of my coworkers said they could see this maker growing in popularity over time. I tried a sample of another of Luisa’s bars (I forget which one it was) and I recall enjoying it. If you want to learn more about Luisa Abram and how she started her chocolate business, read Cocoa Runners’ interview with her here.
First off, I love the presentation and packaging. It’s simple yet elegant! The white wrapper around the bar itself is folded in a way that reminds me of origami. I like how the ingredients listed on the back of the packaging simply consist of just cocoa and sugar. The bar itself smelled subtly nutty and as my bite melted, I tasted both nuttiness and astringency. The texture was very smooth though the chocolate took a little while to melt on my tongue. Midway through my bite, the astringency melted away and I could appreciate just the nuttiness as well as some earthiness.
This was a very pleasant bar! As someone who prefers nutty over earthy bar, I was able to appreciate the subtle earthiness without my palate feeling overwhelmed. I’m really looking forward to trying more of Luisa’s bars in the future!
Luisa Abram: Made in Sao Paulo, Brazil
