This 62% dark chocolate has a light mahogany color and is made from Criollo beans from Peru – a relatively new growing region but demonstrating the ability to grow good quality flavor beans. This couverture has a complex flavor with notes of cherry, blackberry and a nutty finish.
This new brand of chocolates for chefs and confectioners has a great story! The cocoa beans and all the other ingredients are from Latin America and the manufacturing is in Ecuador…one of the only chocolates which is made at the source!
This company was recently introduced to 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 in Latin America for generations.
