CHUAO 100% Light Roast
Creating flavorful 100% chocolate can be elusive. The single ingredient, cacao from Chuao, Venezuela, begins with a very light roast to develop complex, slightly fruity flavors reminiscent of crème fraîche. Days of stone grinding produce a silky texture. Finally, heat with aeration reduces harsh flavor notes remaining from the roasting step. This is conching. We hope our interpretation of this coveted cacao exceeds your expectations.
The Chuao village in the northern coastal mountains of Venezuela is famous for its unique cacao. Chocolate enthusiasts covet the pure, clean flavor notes while reminiscing on romantic visions of Chuao village ancestral courtyards where beans are carefully sundried. We were fortunate to receive a small amount of authentic Chuao village cacao.
