The cocoa comes from a small community called Cesar Vallejo de Palo Blanco, Chulucanas, Piura. Smallholders like Juan de la Cruz Rivera, have cultivated one of the most exquisite native Peruvian cocoas for the last 28 years. Gran Palo Blanco was awarded The Golden Peruvian Cocoa Award 2014. Gran Palo Blanco is special coca and recognized for its delicate flavours, aromas and fragrances. It is a cocoa of low astringency and bitterness, with a creamy texture.
This 72% dark chocolate has a smooth melt, with strong chocolate flavours. There are malty notes like brown bread, also a fruity acidity in the background and roasted hazelnut tones.
