Alto Piura 75 (Peru) – extra fine

CHF 11.40

This Cru de Terroir is distinguished by a magnificently fresh ton and a subtle fruity acidity supported by spicy and wooden notes.

Description

Regarded as one of the birthplaces of original wild cacao, Peru has preserved a rich heritage of native varieties, including the famous white beans called Gran Blanco.

Rediscovered in 2008, and since then considered as one of the noblest in the world, this white cacao is grown in the Alto Piura Valley in the northwest of the country.

Our Gran Blanco beans are grown by a cooperative of small producers, according to the strictest rules of sustainable development and fair trade. Located at less than 800 metres above sea level, the plantations are exclusively worked using organic farming methods.
