Quillabamba 70 (Peru) – extra fine

CHF 10.30

This deliciously creamy Cru de terroir offers aromas of hazelnut, black fruits and spices.

Description

The small town of Quillabamba is located in the foothills of the Andes, in the South of Peru, to some only a few kilometres from the famous Machu Picchu.

It lies on the banks of the Urubamba river, on the edge of the sacred valley of the Incas. Its forests harbour a rare indigenous variety of cocoa: the Chuncho.

Cultivated by a hundred families in the strict respect of the organic agriculture and the agroforestry, at an average altitude of 1200 metres, this precious cocoa comes in the form of very small beans with delicate and concentrated aromas.

Harvested between January and April, it benefits from a gentle fermentation in wooden crates and natural sun-drying under the supervision of Peruvian agronomists.
