Grown on a historical Brazilian plantation, Forastero cacao’s astonishing warm aroma is balanced with tart notes of the native pitanga fruit in 75% dark chocolate.
The Pitanga fruit, also known as the ‘Brazilian cherry’, looks like a small pumpkin and has a sharp and sweet taste. Parasinho’s Forestero cacao is the only variety grown on this Fazenda Sempre Firme platation. Grown amid a forest with the highest biodiversity on earth, this exceptional cacao is distinctly Brazilian.
