The name “Chuao” is spoken with reverence. It symbolizes the world’s most coveted cocoa and its source. For centuries, the farmers of Chuao have faithfully grown the native Venezuelan criollo cocoa. They ritually harvest and ferment the beans, then sun-dry them in front of their historic church. Once they reach us, we gently hand roast and stone grind them, turning this exalted cocoa into one of the world’s finest chocolates. It is pure passion, pure tradition, pure love- pure Chuao.
Tasting Notes: Plums, blueberries, blackberries, molasses, coffee, almonds
