About The Product
Choclatique's Peruvian Single Origin comes from many tiny plantations producing cocoa beans near Rio Apurimac in the Amazonas region of Peru and the San Martin and Huanuco regions to the east of the Andes in the tropical lowlands. The cacao grown in these regions has an upfront sweetness and hint of the bananas and orchids that grow in the area.
This chocolate is dark-toned, bold, and assertive; a very masculine chocolate with an upfront, in-your-face chocolate taste and a smooth silky mouth feel. The cacao used in this blend is of Trinitario and Criolla beans, best described as Ariba quality: that means the best of the very best!
