Categories: ,


Chuao cocoa is considered by many to be the best in the world: it originates exclusively around the village of Chuao near the Henry Pittier National Park in the Aragua state of Venezuela. This cocoa is considered a Modern Criollo, which is characterized by a high genetic purity of Criollo without bitterness and a characteristic touch of acidity which makes the chocolate fresh, fruity and with an extraordinary persistence. In 2021, Chuao cocoa became the first cocoa in the world to receive a certified Designation of Origin, DOCC (Denominacion Oficial Cacao de Chuao).

This dark chocolate has a complex and persistent taste, where you can find notes of currants, strawberries, blueberries, plums, mango and licorice.

This bar was awarded Italian Gold and European Silver by the International Chocolate Awards in 2023

Aroko Chocolate

Behind Aroko are Dubraska and Johonny, a young Venezuelan couple who have lived in Italy for years, and who have decided to bring something from their country of origin to Italy: and it is something very tasty! 
Why Aroko?  In the Chaima language of the indigenous people who populated part of the Venezuelan territory it means Plume or Crown of feathers, a symbol of power and honor. In Venezuelan culture, tribute is often paid to the different Caciques - the indigenous leaders - by giving their name to cities or geographical areas where they dominated; Dubraska and Johonny wanted to pay tribute to all these legendary warriors.
