Orfeve Matepono 90% Solomon Islands Dark
This blend of intense and full-bodied Crus de Propriété slowly reveals a rich aromatic palette ranging from a tangy and fruity attack to a woody finish with notes of mahogany, oud and Havana. Located east of Papua New Guinea, the Kingdom of Solomon Islands is made up of a thousand islands and islets representing a land area barely larger than Switzerland. In recent years, small family cacao farms have gradually replaced large oil palm plantations. Although Solomonian cacao is still little known, it asserts itself as a rare and subtle varietal complex. David Junior Kebu’s cacao plantation is located in the northeast of Guadalcanal Island, near the city of Honiara. Set on the banks of the Matepono River, the family farm is distinguished by the quality of the care taken in fermentation, drying and bean selection. This work earned it a gold medal at the International Cocoa Awards in 2015.
