O'Payo is an organic fine cocoa variety from the Waslala municipality, within the Bosawas Natural Natural Reserve in the northern mountains of Nicaragua. Profundo describes a long fermentation and slow drying process, producing flavors of ripe fruit and nuts with floral and spicy notes.
Our light roast highlights fruity notes from the cocoa's natural acidity. The subtle conche cycle softens some of the cocoa's bright acidity resulting in a chocolate reminiscent of the original cacao fruit. A small amount of added cocoa butter enhances the chocolate’s silky texture as it melts on your palate.
