Our 66% Gran Blanco is made with Criollo cacao from the Norandino Cooperative of Piura, Peru.
Criollo cacao is the rarest of the three main varieties (Forestero, Trinitario & Criollo). Due to its susceptibility to disease it is not widely cultivated. The beans are light in colour and highly sought after for their delicate fruit and nut flavours.
Norandino Cooperative is an association of small producers that contributes to improving the quality of life of its members, contributes to local socio-economic development, and participates in specialty markets with high quality, and value-added products, preserving the environment, promoting the benefits of group behaviour and gender equity. Norandino works with 7000 cocoa, coffee and sugar cane producers from the Piuran mountains in the northeast of Peru.
Made from Organic and Fair Trade cacao, this chocolate exhibits fruit (apricot & raisin) notes and honey/caramel sweetness. A perfect pairing for sweet dessert wine.
