For a moment of indulgence
Grand Cru de Propriété of the Hacienda Chuao
Type of cocoa bean: old Criollo – 78% cocoa
Fresh notes of caramel and hazelnuts, fruity with a hint of honey.
“To be savoured like a fine wine, renowned for its freshness; one of the most unforgettable tasting experiences for cocoa connoisseurs.”
These extremely rare beans hail from a small plantation on the coast of Venezuela. The Chuao region is surrounded by mountains and only accessible by boat, which restricts the influx of people and insects from elsewhere. The cocoa beans grown at the Hacienda Chuao have not changed in decades, and have retained their original characteristics. Undoubtedly one of the best varieties of Criollo on the planet. Around 20 tonnes of cocoa are produced here each year.
