tasting notes : red currents, fresh cream, caramel, nuts
a single-estate chocolate made from rare cacao sourced from Finca La Rioja estate in Cacahoatán, Mexico.
Cacahoatán means the “Place of Cacao” in the ancient Toltec language. The estate cultivates old world criollo varietals and the “Carmelo” Criollo-Forastero hybrid known by its light colour and thin husk. Chocolates made from these special beans have a characteristic light brown colour that is a real beauty to look at.
fermented for 5 days with 1 turn each day, this micro-lot exhibits complex flavours that has a bit of everything we love about chocolate - fruity, nutty, caramel and creamy with a touch of hay and sweet tobacco.
