Colombia Dark Chocolate Bar 70% - 50 g [Expires 31/08/22]
A 50 g tablet of pure goodness, from the Colombian region of Tierralta. A Trinitario type cocoa, which bears in its name the charm and mystery of ancient Teyuna, the "lost city" of the Indians, brought to light by archaeologists in 1976 in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Maria, in Colombia.
Rare sweetness and finesse, with notes of cashew and a honey aftertaste, for an aromatic and elegant chocolate.
Cacao selected in the Tierralta region, known for its highly fertile land, which is threatened by inadequate use and activities such as extensive farming, illegal intensive farming and logging for the sale of wood. In this context, the agroforestry cacao cultivation model is an interesting economic alternative that allows for a sustainable management of natural resources.
For more than eight years, the Integrasinú farmers' association has been the protagonist of the rural economy in the region, rebuilding the social and economic fabric in communities affected by the Colombian armed conflict. To date, it has 193 members. The organization produces high quality cacao with a system of community fermentation and drying facilities located in different areas of the countryside.
Country and region of origin:
Municipality of Tierralta, in the southern part of the Cordoba region, in the Sinú river basin at the foot of the Paramillo Natural Park. PNN Paramillo is an important refuge for the biodiversity of the Colombian northern coast.
