This new chocolate for chefs and confectioners has a great story! The cocoa beans and all the other ingredients are from Latin America and the manufacturing is done in Ecuador…one of the only chocolates which is made at the source! This company received technical assistance from the Valrhona Chocolate Company so the quality has improved dramatically. They use the legendary “nacional fino del aroma” and the “Cacao Arriba” cacao beans which are known for their complex flavor profiles and have been grown for generations.
