Tasting Notes: chocolate-covered espresso bean, roasted nut, and candied lemon peel.
These beans come from Camino Verde Cacao located in central Ecuador in Duran (near Guayaquil). Vicente Norero, the owner and general manager, is one of the most innovative cacao producers we know. He buys freshly harvested, unfermented beans from over 100 farms and associations around Ecuador. He aims to achieve optimal fermentation and drying, which imbue the beans with nutty notes we love. Senior chocolate maker Eric’s mother says she especially enjoys this roasty bar, and appreciates that it isn’t too sweet!
