Porcelana Sorotaima – Limited Edition

When Spanish first found these prized beans they named them “Porcelana” (Porcelain) due to the pure white colour of the bean when freshly cut open. Porcelana is only found in isolated places at the south of Lake Maracaibo, Venezuela with these particular beans coming from Sorotaima. It is a criollo, which in itself is a rare family of cacao, not widely cultivated due to its frailty and low yield, and among the criollo is the Porcelana, the rarest of the rare.

The farm we purchased this cacao from only produce around 400kg per year. The cacao is grown at 645 metres elevation with coffee and guava nearby. We managed to procure two precious sacks which were specially flown out from Miami to Nelson. After the testing was complete we made it all into a 68% chocolate which was stored and aged for 12 months. The extended ageing has reduced all bitterness and acidity to zero and left us with a fine delicate chocolate which is lightly floral and fruity, slightly spicy and minty.

Truly a special chocolate that needs to be experienced at least once, and with a clean palate so you can appreciate the subtlety of this exceptional cacao. We have made around 1200 bars so its strictly a Limited Edition.

Ingredients: Cacao, Organic Sugar, Organic Cocoa Butter

68% Cacao
