L’Amourette – 75% Cocoa Dark Choc. Amazonas Venezuelan Bar

The special cacao beans from which this bar is made sets it apart from our other bars. The Amazonas cacao originates from the same area of South Venezuela as the original Criollo cacao, in a rainforest close to the source of the Orinoco river. Here, during the rainy season, the indigenous Piaroa people harvest the cacao deep in the jungle. It takes two days to transport it by canoe to the nearest road. A subtle note of burnt caramel defines the wild Amazonas cacao beans; it gives our 75% dark chocolate depth and an intricate flavor.
