Peru, Marañón, 70% Dark
Thought to be extinct for 100 years, Pure Nacional cacao was discovered with 40% white beans in late 2007 growing in the Marañón Canyon of Northern Peru by Dan Pearson.
He and his team live with the farmers, pay premium prices and ferment and dry the beans. Now, more children in the Marañón canyon are going to school and more young people are choosing to stay in the canyon to grow cacao because they are finally getting a fair price for their work.
We have striven for a balanced chocolate from these beans, retaining citrus notes while supporting a warm mocha finish.
