Beautiful, and yes, also quite delicious, dark origin chocolate made by the French maker Morin. With cocoa from central Peru.
The maker says about it:
“The cocoa beans come from the Piura region, a northern state of Peru. The climate is semi-dry and the landscape looks more like a savannah than tropical forests where mostly cocoa trees are found. The trees are irrigated and grow mainly on the hill below a wide variety of shade trees, especially banana trees.
These cocoa trees are old and for some they are composed of purple beans, for other white beans, but most are composed of mixed beans: 50% purple and 50% white. This cocoa is Criollo “Porcelana”, white beans. Producers call it “Criollo blanco”.
After the harvest, fermentation and drying are done at the cooperative. ”
