70% HONDURAS - Cortés
Dark chocolate with deep notes of hazelnut, crème caramel & fudge
Cacao Direct began operations in 2014, in the remote area of Wampusirpi in the Rio Plátano Biosphere Reserve in La Moskitia. In 2016, the operations expanded with another fermentation center in the more accessible area near San Pedro Sula in the Cortés Department.
A mix of the native cacao Mayan Red and other Trinitario clones are grown.
The cacao is first tray fermented for six days and turned four times. Later they apply a very slow sun drying method on trays for a low astringency and acidity.
Ingredients: Cacao, organic cane sugar.
