A very nice 100% chocolate from Original Beans.
As always – the manufacture is by Felchlin – full of flavor and with what we consider very pleasant, or actually just great, way of melting. An excellent 100% chocolate for every collection and all lovers.
From the creators: “Show dried flowers and grass.”
About the cocoa bean
Original Beans explains: The Chuncho cocoa can be found in Cusco, Junín and Ayacucho, and is a range of different varieties and not so much a homogeneous group.
They have been identified as native Peruvian cocoa and genetically part of the large ‘Forastero del Alo Amazonas’ group. But scientific research is still ongoing.
The cocoa fruits are small and the beans too (less than 1 gram per bean) – but they are also very substantial because they are known for their high fat content. The Chuncho cocoa is almost never used exclusively in chocolate, as it is usually mixed with hybrids. Our 100% Cusco Chuncho bar is therefore a real rarity.
