Orfeve Quillabamba 70% Peru Dark
This deliciously creamy Cru de Terroir offers aromas of hazelnut, black fruits, and spices. The small town of Quillabamba is located in the foothills of the Andes, in the South of Peru, only a few kilometers from the famous Machu Picchu. It lies on the banks of the Urubamba river, on the edge of the sacred valley of the Incas. Its forests harbor a rare indigenous variety of cocoa: the Chuncho. Cultivated by a hundred families in the strict respect of organic agriculture and agroforestry, at an average altitude of 1200 meters, this precious cocoa comes in the form of very small beans with delicate and concentrated aromas. Harvested between January and April, it benefits from a gentle fermentation in wooden crates and natural sun-drying under the supervision of Peruvian agronomists.
