Tasting Notes: Dark and earthy, with spice, dark stone fruit, and cinnamon.
Cacao from Ecuador has always been highly prized. But at Camino Verde, Vicente Norero's groundbreaking work in fermentation techniques is changing the game. Using approaches similar to those employed by wine makers, Noreror is able to push specific flavor precursors. This not only produces superior beans, it results in cacao that is highly consistent in flavor from lot to lot.
As Camino Verde's fame has grown, the demand from their cacao has grown as well. So we are very pleased that not only have we been able to acquire some, we were able to get a new "microlot" from the nearby Manabi province.
From its beautiful beans, to its nibs, to its ground "cocoa liquor," Camino Verde Manabi has the classic look of deep, dark chocolate. But there's nothing traditional or standard about its flavor! It's deep and complex, with multiple notes of dark fruit and spice.
Vincente Norero and the staff of Camino Verde are changing the world of fine cacao, and we invite you to experience the amazing results!
