Cacao Region

Aragua, Venezuela

Aragua State is located squarely in northern Venezuela, along the central coast. The region encompasses a variety of climes, including beaches, plains, and jungles, the latter of which is home to one of the state’s many industries: cacao farming. The municipalities of Choroní, Ocumare, and Chuao are some of the most famous & historic cacao-growing areas of Venezuela, as well as the home of— arguably— its most beautiful beaches. In Ocumare the main industries are fishing and cacao production, while Chuao is famously close to the capital city of Caracas, but difficult to get to. The village is only accessible by travelling via boat from nearby Choroní, and then trekking a few miles inland.

Cacao Strain

Ocumare

“Ocumare” refers to both a village & region and a cacao blend— rather than necessarily a specific type— native to that village & region. The town, whose full name is Ocumare de la Costa, sits in a remote valley known on the central coast of Venezuela. Along with a few other micro-regions within Aragua State, notably Choroní and Chuao, Ocumare is one of the most famous & historic cacao-growing areas of Venezuela. It’s been known for its superior criollo cacaos since the beginning of the 18th century, and that fame has led to quite a bit of popularity, so much so that Ocumare cacao is now one of the most prized in the world. The two identified Ocumare strains are criollo-heavy, with creamy, bright notes.

Duffy's Venezuela Ocumare 55%

I really enjoyed this bar for the cozy sweet flavor of toffee and caramel milk-like. Perfect for sweet cravings days, delicate palate and beer/white wine pairings.The negative note of this maker is the use of lecithin but the mold and presentation are well-curated.
