The arid, desert-like climate the Piura White beans hail from is highly unusual. It is not typical for cacao to grow or thrive in these conditions, however, here they flourish.

The chocolate is sprinkled with nibs, creating a push/pull tasting experience. The nibs cut through the chocolate's richness and sweetness, allowing for more reflection on the cacao's origin - a Lucid classic.

Made in the Wairarapa, New Zealand.

Cacao Origin

Piura, Peru.

Cacao Variety

Piura is a type of Criollo, but with white cocoa beans. 

"White cacaos like the Piura Blanco only make up around 0.1 percent of the world's harvest. They are therefore very rare and immensely sought after by cacao producers and chocolate experts. Most noticeably, their ivory colored beans taste less bitter."

"But how did the Blanco come to be? There is no simple answer. Cacao genetic experts believe that the Piura Blanco is an “albino” mutation of an older native cacao of which only the “albino” offspring survived in the forgotten corner of the dry Piura Valley."
