Orfeve San Ignacio 70% Peru Dark exp. 06/24

$ 8.00 $ 12.50

This tender and unctuous Cru de Terroir, totally devoid of acidity and bitterness, presents delicate floral and ripe fruit notes on a slightly caramelised chocolatey base.  Located between the foothills of the Andes and the Amazon, in the far north of the country, the province of San Ignacio is bordered by the the Rio Marañon valley and its steep canyons. Despite its high altitude, between 1000 and 1250 metres, its exceptional microclimate and its isolation have allowed the conservation of a variety of cacao long considered extinct: a genetically perfectly pure Nacional. Since 2010, this cacao has been the subject of an exceptional preservation programme, thanks to the support of 400 farmer-owners in the region, gathered around a model post-harvest treatment center. After several years of experimentation, a strict fermentation and drying protocol has been developed, allowing the perfect expression of the extraordinarily delicate aromas of this cacao, unique in the world.
