Good start, Martin! Looks very authentic. Is Malagasy a name of the company? Has it been sold anywhere else before? Going to order to try. Mora-Mora sounds a bit too sweet for 73%? And must say that pop-up for it comes up under “Amedei” – is it a sign of Amedei finally appearing?

Oops – a database error! We have Amedei in stock, we just have to get our photos done and descriptions, etc., but it should be in the next few weeks.

The Malagasy is quite sweet, this is sweetness from the beans and the cocoa butter. It has a good melt though, and I hope this is just the beginning for them.

I think Malagasy could stand to use a greater portion of Criollo. It was very satisfying, very much in the same respect as tasting a finer Forastero. However, there are very slight similarties to Domori’s Sambirano, but of course, it’s not quite at the same level. It’s definitely an interesting interpretation on Madagascar chocolate and is certainly a worthwhile taste experience.
