Discover the richness and variety of Peru’s terroirs with this gourmet box presenting Orfève’s San Ignacio 70, Quillabamba 70, Alto Piura 75 chocolates in our traditional Noir de Noir recipe and the Alto Piura 70 in our crunchy, Brut de Noir recipe.
Regarded as one of the birthplaces of original wild cacao, Peru has preserved a rich heritage of native varieties.
Orfève has selected three for this Gourmet set: the Gran Blanco from Alto Piura, in the northwest of the country, the Chuncho Urushaia from Quillabamba, in the Machu Pichu region, and the native Nacional from San Ignacio, along the Rio Marañon.
All of these cacaos were rediscovered only ten years ago and are now the subject of patient work to improve their value thanks to the efforts of hundreds of small farmers, grouped into cooperatives.
Difficult to cultivate and transform into chocolate, fragile to disease and limited in yield, these cocoas nevertheless offer extraordinary flavours and aromas that we are proud to enhance.
Based in Geneva, Orfève was founded by François-Xavier Mousin and Caroline Buechler. A cocoa and chocolate manufacturer, Orfève masters all stages of chocolate production from bean to bar.
The raw materials composing Orfève chocolates are totally in compliance with the principles of sustainable development, for both Man and Nature.
Our fine cocoas
Carefully selected by our sources, the cocoas for Orfève chocolates come from the noblest soils on the planet.
The Orfève production methods, faithful to old practices, are all artisanal and gentle, in order to preserve the nobility and originality of our fine cocoas.
Our dark chocolate
Orfève produces 100% original and vintage bars in order to showcase the rarest and most precious varieties of cocoa. The result, our pride, is a unique Swiss chocolate of purity and authenticity.
