Description: Dark chocolate bar (72 % cocoa minimum)
Origin: Venezuela has always been home to the best cocoa in the world. All along the coast it is possible to find different types of fine cocoa, from the “porcelain” white of the northeast, to the south of Lake Maracaibo all the way over to Cumaná, where our friends the Franceschi family grow their excellent Creole varieties. In the late 17th century missionary Matías Ruiz Blanco, originally from Estepa, carried out Evangelisation work in the region, combining it with the provision of aid to Palenque and Cumanagoto Indians. We dedicate this chocolate to his memory.
Get ready to taste a chocolate of “historic” value, that of the cocoa beans which over so many centuries crossed the ocean accompanying the gold and silver of Spanish galleons. Revel in this Venezuelan cocoa. A veritable treasure of the Caribbean.
Aromatic profile: notes of raisins, chestnuts and liquorice can be detected amid the clear toasted taste of cocoa in the strong bitter base.
