Originating from the southwest of Lake Maracaibo, Venezuela, Porcelana is considered to be the purest expression of Criollo cocoa.
Probably the world’s finest and most valuable cocoa, its name comes from the white, almost translucent colour of the mature pods.
Fragile and highly vulnerable to diseases and pests, Porcelana almost disappeared, replaced by less demanding and more profitable crops. It remains extremely rare today.
Its delightful delicacy, perfect harmony and sweetness have led it to be considered as a veritable Grail among connoisseurs.
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.
