Criollo is the best cocoa bean in the world, but unfortunately, it has become exceedingly rare. In Peru, a vintage cocoa variety has been preserved, and its fruit contains 30% of the legendary white Criollo beans. This bar is a fine cocoa blend mixed by Mother Nature herself, conserving a veritable jewel of a cocoa source. Enjoy this top-of-the-range single-origin chocolate with a surprisingly mild flavour despite a whopping 82% cocoa content.
