Within its "Around the World" collection, dedicated to farmers, this raw or raw chocolate bar, in which cocoa is processed at a very low temperature to maintain its antioxidant properties and aromas, uses cocoa from the Los Rios area in Guayas.
The Hacienda El Perichal is to the south of Guayaquil, in the delta of the Rio Guayas, an old area of mangroves and tropical crops that today is dedicated to agriculture.
Here, for hundreds of years, Gran Cacao was grown, the best cacao in Ecuador, the basis of its economy until the oil and the epidemics in the trees arrived.
These cocoas are recovered for a chocolate with notes of cream and dark molasses, followed by notes of aromatic coffee, roasted nuts, especially bitter almonds and bananas.
