CHF 40.00

Description

Regarded as one of the birthplaces of original wild cacao, Peru has preserved a rich heritage of native varieties.

Orfève has selected three for this Gourmet set: the Gran Blanco from Alto Piura, in the northwest of the country, the Chuncho Urushaia from Quillabamba, in the Machu Pichu region, and the native Nacional from San Ignacio, along the Rio Marañon.

All of these cacaos were rediscovered only ten years ago and are now the subject of patient work to improve their value thanks to the efforts of hundreds of small farmers, grouped into cooperatives.

Difficult to cultivate and transform into chocolate, fragile to disease and limited in yield, these cocoas nevertheless offer extraordinary flavours and aromas that we are proud to enhance.
