Alto Beni region, Bolivia 70%
We source organic cacao grown by passionate small-holder farmers scattered through the jungles of Alto Beni, Bolivia to make a velvety chocolate with a subtle tang and charming character.
While Alto Beni, Bolivia evokes flavours of rich honey, citrus and summery spices, it’s simply the cacao’s origin talking – plus organic cane sugar and our obsession for preserving the flavours of provenance. And because your senses are unique, you may discover characters and aromas others may not – that’s the magic of Foundry Chocolate.
From the 2017 vintage. Please note the batch number you receive will differ from the one pictured.
Ingredients: Cacao Beans & Organic Cane Sugar. No added cacao butter, lecithin or vanilla.
Deep in the jungles of Alto Beni, Bolivia, a young cacao company started by two Bolivian brothers has transformed the local cacao economy. Nelson and Jorge Valverde started the Alto Beni Cacao Company in 2010 to improve livelihoods of small-scale farmers who depend on cacao as a main source of income. Alto Beni Cacao pays premium farmgate prices and runs a careful centralised post-harvest operation. Credit: Uncommon Cacao
