Polochic Valley 251
The cacao farmers from central Guatemala's Polochic Valley have grown cacao for many years. In 2016 their crop was exported outside of Guatemala for the first time. With subtle flavor notes of deep red fruit and caramel, this is some of the finest cacao we have experienced.
Fresco is pleased to offer four variations of dark chocolate crafted from this exceptional cacao:
Our 70% Medium Roast has a subtle earthy note up front with lingering red fruit and caramel notes as the chocolate melts. The medium cocoa roast creates a unique chocolate flavor profile that is different from this bar's light and dark roasted cousins. We use a long conche cycle on this chocolate recipe to create a mellow, subtle chocolate experience.
We invite you to experience Polochic Valley for yourself, we think you will be impressed.
