As far as we are concerned, it is only logical for dark chocolates, but Zotter also notes: this chocolate is vegan.
Furthermore Zotter says about:
“A dark origin chocolate with pure floral Arriba cocoa from Ecuador and a cocoa percentage of 75%.” Arriba is unique and an ecological piece of happiness that only blossoms in Ecuaodor. at the same level as they bring famous Criollo cocoa from Central America.
It grows in the famous cocoa region of Los Rios, which is crossed by innumerable rivers. The cocoa harvest was brought downstream from river to Guayaquil. And if someone asked where this amazing cocoa came from, the answer was “Arriba!” – which is simply Spanish for “from above.” This was repeated so often that it eventually became a quality mark.
Arriba cocoa from Ecuador is briefly concocted to ensure that the characteristic floral aroma remains intact. ”
We do not know if the story about the origin of the ‘Arriba’ wood carve, we suspect that this is a beautiful fable. But we want to confirm that the cocoa is floral and delicious.
