This single origin, dark chocolate bar by Willies chocolate is created from fine flavour Criollo cocoa from Peru, in the foothills of the Andes, in the lush Amazonian rainforests. The flavour notes are raisins and plums.
The cocoa beans
The beans are grown by small farmers, who are part of a cooperative who provide them with technical and marketing assistance and credit to help increase productivity and profitability.
Willie's Peruvian Gold Chulucanas 70 - I was very curious to compare the taste of pure Peruvian chocolate, with that of Willie's Cafe Negro chocolate bar, which is combined with Coffee from Peru. The Chocolate Trading Co's tasting notes are very accurate and there's plenty of fruity notes without the over-bitterness you can experience with luxury dark chocolate of this cocoa percentage.
