A bright and vibrant 72% organic dark chocolate made with the finest Peruvian cacao. We discovered flavour notes of strawberry, cherimoya (custard apple) and mandarin. A truly astonishing bar that will leave you in disbelief that it is made with just cacao and sugar, such is the intensity and natural sweetness of this light and fruity cacao.

Origin: Peru, Junín, Ayacucho and Cuzco departments, isolated rural Peru. Located in the mid-southern Peruvian jungle at the crossroads of the Junin, Ayacucho and Cuzco regions lies the farming region known as the Valley of Rivers (known locally as VRAE). In this isolated rural area, years of Government and University investment has helped the local cocoa farmers expand their knowledge and farming practices. This combined with the VRAE’s beautifully associated terroir has led them to prioritise the aromatic aspects of their cocoa.

Genetics: VRAE-99, VRAE-15, Chuncho, native varieties.

Fermentation: 6 Day fermentation in sweet Tornillo wood using an escalator system with daily rotation after the first two days. The beans are then dried undercover.

Handcrafted from bean to bar in the Wairarapa, New Zealand.



Organic cacao beans, organic cane sugar, organic cacao butter
