Nicaragua O’Payo 70% Dark Roast Chocolate – Recipe 272
O'Payo is an organic fine cacao variety from the Waslala municipality, within the Bosawas Natural Reserve in the northern mountains of Nicaragua. Profundo describes a long fermentation and slow drying process, producing cacao flavors of ripe fruit and nuts with floral and spicy notes.
The dark roasted cacao in our Recipe 272 bar develops notes of caramel and roasted nut with hints of floral. The long conche cycle softens this cacao's brighter notes, balancing natural acidity with deeper flavors. A small amount of added cocoa butter enhances the chocolate’s silky texture as it melts on your palate.
