Maker Notes: To the west of Caracas, Venezuela, accessible only by boat, and after several kilometers of winding and uncertain road lies a mythical place: Chuao.
This small village has been known for generations for the purity and quality of the cocoa that grows there. Bordered to the north by dense tropical forests, to the south by the Caribbean Sea, this isolation guarantees a pure criollo and some hybrids unique in the world. An exceptional terroir, an ancestral know-how, a traditional drying on the ground in front of the church square made this cocoa the most sought after in the world and the best. Tiny production makes it a rare product that we are proud to present.
This chocolate is balanced in bitterness and acidity, woody, structured.
