Peru 83% Dark Chocolate – 25g
ABOUT THE CHOCOLATE:
Ucayali River Cacao is located near Pucallpa, Ucayali, Peru. Until recently this area has not been known for fine cacao, but due to the efforts of USAID and Alianza Cacao of Peru there are farmers that are abandoning coca production for Cacao, Coffee and Oil Palm. Back in 2017, we were invited down to visit Ucayali River Cacao, and were able to see first hand how much hard work that goes into crafting their specialty cacao.
As the chocolate melts on your tongue, flavours of almond emerge first and foremost, followed by black tea and spice. At 83% we are really impressed at the balance of flavours and low astringency.
- This chocolate is made from cacao beans from Peru. We purchase this cacao in partnership with Cacao Latitudes.
- Ucayali River Cacao does not grow their own cacao; they purchase from local farmers and offer a higher price for their wet cacao (seeds & fruit removed from the pod).
- The team at Ucayali are very skilled at fermentation and drying and it shows in the cacao we receive from them.
- The pouch is made from compostable material and printed with soy ink
- Vegan, Soy Free
- Organic cane sugar
- Organic cocoa butter
