Pacari Chocolates UK
Limited Edition Piura Quemazón 70% Cacao Organic Single Region Fine Chocolate
Our Limited Edition chocolate bars are made with some of the rarest cacao beans on earth meaning they are only available in limited quantities. Unsurprisingly, these bars have won dozens of International Chocolate Awards between them.
As you may know, Pacari chocolate is normally made from Arriba Nacional cacao beans native to Ecuador. In contrast, this chocolate is made from cacao beans native to Piura, a region in the North-West of Peru. There's something else that's special about these beans, they're albino,and, in fact, they're the only albino bean that survived the migration of cacao from the Amazon to the coast.Their rarity is matched only by their taste. The bar's earthy aroma and fruity and floral notes have earned it the most awards in our range.
George Gensler describes the tasting notes as follows:
"The opening note is sharp, evoking, again, a rawness, though this is not a raw bar. There are notes of dried fruit, raw cocoa beans, citrus and, towards the end, nuts, all tumbling over each other on a wave of chocolate flavor that persists throughout and for a while after the other notes have faded."
