Regarded as one of the birthplaces of original wild cacao, Peru has preserved a rich heritage of native varieties, including the famous white beans called Gran Blanco.
Rediscovered in 2008, and since then considered as one of the noblest in the world, this white cacao is grown in the Alto Piura Valley in the northwest of the country.
The Gran Blanco beans for this bar are grown by a cooperative of small producers, according to the strictest rules of sustainable development and fair trade. Located at less than 800 metres above sea level, the plantations are exclusively worked using organic farming methods.
Orfève use an original manufacturing technique for their Brut de Noir bars. This provides a surprising crunch from the raw cane sugar.
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.
