This cocoa, whose pods are porcelain-colored, is grown in the Maracaibo region. A chocolate with toasted aromas, then dried fruits complete the vegetable notes, to finish with a flavor of hot chocolate. At the time of the colonies, Porcelana cocoa was called Maracaibo, after the name of the eponymous port from which the beans were shipped. It was renamed Porcelana because of the “porcelain” appearance of its pods.

Ingredients: Cocoa beans, cane sugar, cocoa butter, sunflower lecithin. (May contain traces of milk, nuts, sesame ).

A Morin Chocolatiers are a 4th generation chocolate maker in Donzère, France. Chocolatiers from father to son since 1994, André Morin founded Chocolaterie A. Morin in 1958 to start making bean to bar chocolate. Since then, they have created artisan chocolate in accordance with chocolate making tradition.They have spent years cultivating relationships with their cocoa producers and farmers to create their line of single origin chocolate bars. They also cultivate over 15,000 acres of fruit and nut orchards to use as raw ingredients such as almonds, hazelnuts and cherries for their pralines, pastes, nougats and jams.

Cacao Region

Zulia, Venezuela

Zulia is the westernmost state in Venezuela, and besides containing one of the largest oil and gas reserves in the Western Hemisphere, Zulia includes the famous cacao-growing region of Maracaibo, which happens to be the state capital. Although Zulia is economically important to Venezuela due to its oil and mineral exploitation, it’s also one of the major agricultural regions of Venezuela, and contains historically-relevant trading ports.

Cacao Strain

Porcelana

Porcelana; the name is Spanish for “porcelain,” a reference to the stark white color of the seeds borne in their small, pale green pods. Porcelana is one of the cultivars of the the Criollo group. Porcelana is perhaps one of the best-known ultra-rare cacao varietals, only grown in a small region of Venezuela and Colombia. It’s become one of the most prized and expensive cacaos in the world thanks to its near complete lack of bitterness and delicate chocolaty flavor.

It's so good I bought them out

Porcelana is a great bean, rare but more available now. I used to enjoy Valhorna and Amadei but this one is smoother than both. It still retains the full or more flavor of the Porcelana beans (a little bit of the Pralus sourness and fermented flavor). I believe it's not too refined, full flavor and very smooth. Best Porcelana I've had. Bought out the store.
