Chuncho Chocolate 70%

Chuncho Chocolate 70%

€6,00

This chocolate is made from the unique chuncho cacao from Peru, the same as our 100% ceremonial quality cacao. This chocolate has a soft and delicate fruity flavor. You can taste hints of orange, lemon, banana and other tropical fruits. This all comes from the cacao itself, nothing is added or extracted.

"Chocolate! We never planned to offer it, but this turned out so delicious we had to share it."

The cacao is grown in the stunning Quelloúno Valley on very old trees, some over a 100 years old. The unique chuncho cacao variety is preserved here because the grandfather Feliciano refused to replace the trees for more producing and resistant hybrids as was done a lot in the region. We are forever thankful to him and the family for continuing to care for this beautiful land and cacao.

Agro-ecological farming

The agro-ecological farming method goes beyond organic principles, creating a healthy place for plants and animals to live. Of course without use of pesticides and herbicides. Large trees function as corridors for monkeys and squirrels to move around, as well as for birds to live and feed. With a large variety of native plants and trees a jungle forest is maintained with a healthy soil for the cacao and other fruit trees to thrive.

With the income from this chocolate, old barren or deserted plots of land in the area are reforested with native trees and of course special cacao seedlings. Reforesting with this knowledge of nature is important for healthy and resilient forests in the future.

Taste notes: orange, lemon, banana, tropical fruit, delicate, long aftertaste.

Chuncho Chocolate

Surprising good! The fruity taste is hiding the sweetness of the chocolate. It still has the flavour of dark chocolade which is my most favourite snack.
A lovely treat. Thank you.
