This chocolate, while exhibiting the typical floral and chocolaty taste so common in Ecuadorian chocolates, is beautifully balanced with notes of honey and vanilla and a remarkably smooth woodsy finish.
About the Origin
These couverture chocolates are made from the prized Nacional Arriba beans. What makes these beans even more special is that they are cultivated in the tropical lowlands of Northwestern Ecuador by the indigenous Tsáchila people of Santo Domingo. From a population of 20,000 in the 18th to a mere 2,000 today, the premium paid for these special beans help this small community keep their culture and heritage alive.
Cocoa beans (beans from Ecuador), sugar, cocoa butter, emulsifier (soy lecithin) and vanilla. May contain traces of milk and nuts.
Unopened, the chocolates have a shelf-life of 24 months when kept in a dry place between 12 and 18° C.
