Ritual Mexico 75%
The Soconusco cacao growing region has a chocolate history that is as rich as its flavor is today. This area was one of the main cacao producing regions for the Aztec empire and its quality was considered to be the most valuable by the colonial Spanish empire. This chocolate is made with cacao from the Rayen Cooperative, which is a new organization of cacao growers that are focused on quality and continuing the reputation of the Soconusco region as a strong cacao source. This is a region Ritual has been interested in ever since we began making chocolate because of its unique history and fabled quality. The first impression of flavor of this origin is extreme nuttiness (imagine the nuttiness of Madagascar chocolate but without all the fruit). There’s a bit of citrus in the flavor, but it definitely takes a backseat to the upfront nutty, woody and chocolate flavors. This coop is extremely small which means that the supply of this origin is limited.
