San Ignacio, Peru
Extra fine dark chocolate 70%.
Located between the foothills of the Andes and the Amazon, in the extreme north of the country, the province of San Ignacio is bordered by the Rio Marañon valley and its steep canyons.
Despite the high altitude, between 1,000 and 1,250 metres, its exceptional microclimate and its isolation have enabled the preservation of a variety of cocoa long considered extinct: a genetically pure Nacional.
Since 2010, this cocoa has been the subject of an exceptional preservation programme, thanks to the support of 400 farmer-owners in the region, united around a model post-harvest processing centre.
After several years of experimentation, a strict fermentation and drying protocol has been developed, allowing the perfect expression of the extraordinarily delicate aromas of this unique cocoa.
