Fine fresh fruit

For our new Piura Peru Dark 71% chocolate bar we used the rare Piura Blanco cacao. The typical brilliant and light colour of the bean preludes its complex lingering and fruity flavour. Voted as best Peruvian cacao in 2016, this bar is a fine addition to the H&V collection.

For this bar we have used two different roasting profiles. The first one highlights notes of fresh fruit. The second roast brings out lovely mellow notes of nuts and a warm aftertaste of caramel and coffee.

Native to Peru, the beans grow in the high Piura Valley region. We source the Piura Blanco from Norandino cooperative that strives to improve social, economic and environmental circumstances of the farmers.
