Pangea, Venezuela Chuao 73%
The Chuao cocoa bean, named after the plantation and defined geographical area from which it is grown, is considered to produce some of the finest chocolate in the world.
The 140 hectare Chuao plantation is found in the Aragua valley in Northern Venezuela and is situated inside one of Latin America’s oldest national parks, Parque Nacional Henri Pittier Rancho Grande. The entire town revolves around cocoa and its nucleus is the little colonial church with its enormous parvis, the “patio de secado”, where the precious cocoa beans are left to dry. It boasts unique soil conditions and a micro-climate that includes high equatorial humidity and heavy rains which help wash fertile and rich silt down the mountain-side, creating perfect growing conditions for the cocoa.
This bar has a subtle profile, with a higher roast and nutty flavours accompanying the tropical fruits typical of the origin.
