This authentic Colombian 50% milk chocolate bar was made with beans from the Arauca region, home to the majestic “Sierra Nevada del Cocuy” a renowned sanctuary of flora and fauna.
Cacao from Arauca has a distinct nutty flavour, and this bar is no different. This wonderful Colombian cacao chocolate also offers caramel and hazelnut flavours before a floral note emerges combined with citrus and peach. It has a well-balanced low-medium acidity and a creamy body.
Home to the majestic “Sierra Nevada del Cocuy”, the Arauca region is a sanctuary of flora and fauna characterised by its great plains. In the west, the magnificent Eastern Ranges of the Colombian Andes rise abruptly from the wide open grasslands, giving birth to the region’s diverse ecosystem. Here, the alluvial plains and fertile foothills of the Andes merge into mountainous landscapes crossed by the Arauca, Meta and Casanare rivers. To the beat of “joropo” music, in the land of cowboys and verdant savannahs, Tibito carefully source the best cocoa beans for this chocolate bar. The beautiful flavours and aromas of our single origin chocolate bars are enhanced by the fertile soil of the cocoa-growing region.
TIBITÓ CHOCOLATE is a Colombian Bean to Bar manufacturer established in 2015, born out of a desire to explore the richness and diversity of Colombian cocoa. This curiosity led them to embark on a countrywide journey to source Colombia's finest cocoa beans.
By working with the very best growers, they believe they've achieved a superior product that gives local cocoa producers the credit they deserve. They engage directly with the cocoa farmers and cooperatives (no intermediaries) to ensure they obtain top-quality beans while compensating producers with a premium price for their excellent product.
"We have created world-class artisanal chocolate that represents the richness and variety of Colombian regions and their cocoa beans. At our factory in Bogotá, we carefully process the cocoa beans with state-of-the-art machinery to create the product that we love so much – and we hope you will too!"
