In a class with Rio Cassiporé 81%, this noble bean-to-bar reigns with warm, tropical, earthy notes. Broad and expressive, a mellow finish lingers and delights.
A motherland for native cacao, local communities and missionaries have responsibly sourced cocoa trees along the Cassiporé River for generations. Cacao is crushed to savor…and used as medicine (beans, bark, and butter can heal wounds). Chocolate is a savior, inside and out.
