Perù Dark Chocolate Bar 70%
A chocolate bar with a taste of social redemption, with Trinitario cocoa coming from local producers in Perù. Cocoa freshness for high quality confectionery.
A delicate freshness and a discreet acidity enrich the sensory profile of this cacao from inland Peru, cultivated in the land enclosed by the Rivers Ucayali and Marañon. It was along the Rio Ucayali that Europeans first came into contact with South American cacao, and it is in the land enclosed by Peru's generous watercourses that cacao's wildest origins lie: these could be the lands where all the existing species of Theobroma, the cacao plant, began.
The Peru Single Origin carries the flavour of social redemption: the Trinitario cacao selected by Domori is sourced from the Sumaqao cooperative plantations, which groups together small, local, marginalised farmers who have managed to create a living by cultivating cacao in three main areas, Vrae, Ayacucho and San Martin.
Type of cultivation:
Trinitario cacao is an aromatic cacao. It represents around 8% of the global harvest. Trinitario is a hybrid of Criollo and Forastero cacao, combining some of the aromatic and sensory features of the former with the vigor and high yields of the latter.
Country and region of origin:
Perù, with two main geographical locations - the valleys of the Rivers Ucayali and Maranon, tributaries of the Amazon. Production takes place in 5 regions: VRAE, Ayacucho, Cuzco, Junin, Ucayali and San Martin.
Very delicate with discreet acidity and a fresh flavour that makes it a highly sough-tafter protagonist in haute patisserie and cocktails.
Preservation notes: the product must be stored in a cool, dry, odorless location at a temperature between 14° and 20°C.
