For a long time we’ve been searching for a cacao suitable for a higher percentage bar. These Arriba Nacional beans from Hacienda Victoria, Ecuador, have exactly what we have been looking for: lightly fermented, low acidity and beautiful delicate flavour and aroma.
Hacienda Victoria is a 500 hectare cocoa plantation about 30 minutes from Guayaquil with ideal climate and superb environmental conditions, along with a sustainable and socially responsible crop management that begins in their nursery and ends in the drying of beans after careful fermentation. It is at Hacienda Victoria that they are bringing the lush forest back to life, bringing back the tradition of growing the world’s best cacao.
This chocolate is low in sugar yet with no bitterness. It has a creamy mouth-feel with notes of cashew and Brazil nuts.
Ingredients: Cocoa beans, organic sugar, organic cocoa butter
