Aromatic and sweet, this dark chocolate from Camino Verde Estate on the southern coastline of Ecuador has brown sugar sweetness and a delightful nutty profile.
The majority of beans grown on this estate are 100% Nacional Blend cacao. In 2008, Vicente Norero revived a 381 hectare cacao plantation after years of disrepair and called it Camino Verde. With a background in microbiology, he works to create new and unique inoculated ferments, work with microlots to discover new flavors, and support and respect farmers, to yield only high quality fine cacao.
