ORFÈVE – Quillambamba 70%


“This deliciously creamy Cru de Terroir offers aromas of hazelnut, black fruits and spices. The small town of Quillabamba is located in the foothills of the Andes, in the South of Peru, to some only a few kilometres from the famous Machu Picchu. It lies on the banks of the Urubamba river, on the edge of the sacred valley of the Incas. Its forests harbour a rare indigenous variety of cocoa: the Chuncho. Cultivated by a hundred families in the strict respect of the organic agriculture and the agroforestry, at an average altitude of 1200 metres, this precious cocoa comes in the form of very small beans with delicate and concentrated aromas. Harvested between January and April, it benefits from a gentle fermentation in wooden crates and natural sun-drying under the supervision of Peruvian agronomists.”

INGREDIENTS: Cacao beans, raw cane sugar, cocoa butter, whole cane sugar.

ORFÈVE is the first Swiss chocolate maker to be features in the Bean Bar You collection. Caroline Buechler and François-Xavier Mousin worked within the watch making industry until they discovered the world of craft chocolate and couldn't resist the temptation to dive in. Since 2017 they have been gradually perfecting their new craft and the result is the precision you'd expect. The bars feature the spectacular Clous de Paris pattern one of the most used engraving patterns on classic watch faces.  It is a bold elegance and is a delight to photograph and even better to savour in chocolate form.There's been a long history of chocolate making in Switzerland unfortunately it's nearly all industrial production, much in that sweet milk style that evolved from the first milk bar which was made with condensed milk back in 1875. Nearly everyone on the chocolate planet has tried something from 3 of the biggest chocolate companies in the world. Lindt (7th largest), Nestlé (6th largest) or Toblerone (owned by Mondelēz, the 3rd largest). Lindt has made great strides in increasing quality but now there there is growing craft chocolate makers who are raising the bar and developing a new recognition of quality. We're so happy to discover this new side to swiss chocolate. Let's all plan a trip to visit!  See more
