origin: La Concepción, Rio Caribe, Venezuela
This cacao has an aromatic raisin note with a strong chocolate undertone. A subtle nutty undertone rounds out its complex and pleasant flavors.
Cacao beans from Río Caribe "La Concepción” are called Carúpano Pintao because people from this place used to paint cacao pods with red clay to avoid insects.(description courtesy of Intercacao)
