Our Arauquita 63% dark chocolate is hand-crafted using premium cocoa beans from the Arauca region of Northern Colombia. Taking it's name from the Arauca river and it's peoples, this fruit growing region also borders Venezuela.
Our cacao is directly sourced with our partners Cocoanect and centrally fermented in order to ensure distinctive flavours of the highest quality. This particular cacao is quickly growing in popularity amongst premium chocolate makers.
We found this cocoa to have a distinctive fruity aroma after roasting that enhanced a zesty, citrus flavour within the chocolate. We've affectionately nicknamed this chocolate as our 'Old Fashioned' since the cocoa had a zesty, bitterness and tones of alcohol that transformed into a deep cocoa aroma.
Ingredients: Arauquita Cacao, Sugar, Cocoa Butter
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans
Many of our Single Origin chocolates are made using identical processes in order to showcase the varying natural qualities in each cacao variety.
