Tasting Notes: A bright, sophisticated chocolate with notes of tropical fruit, caramel cream and a subtle finish of walnut skin.
Essentially, this is chocolate that shouldn't even exist, because the cacao bean this chocolate is made from went extinct nearly 100 years ago. Or so everyone thought. Then in 2009 a mining supplier named Dan Pearson stumbled onto some cacao trees in a remote river canyon in Peru, and they turned out to be the supposedly extinct Pure Nacional!
Peru Marañón is still only grown in this remote river canyon, and the amount available to the market is tiny even by fine cacao standards. But we have managed to get our hands on a small amount of it, and we are thrilled to share it with you.
When was the last time you had the opportunity to experience chocolate that is not only the rarest in the world, but made from cacao beans that were supposed to be extinct?
