This bar is made with beans from the estate, Hacienda Las Trincheras. If you want to learn more about the story of Willie’s chocolate make sure to watch the show “Willies Wonky Chocolate Factory” – it will inspire you to go out and do something you believe in.
“Las Trincheras is made from beans which come from a very old hacienda in Carabobo in Venezuela. They work with the Terra Viva Foundation, a non-governmental organisation that encourages sustainable development through environmental programmes. All farming methods are traditional and no chemicals are used. The beans are a fine Trinitario with smooth nutty notes. I started making chocolate with this bean for all the people who are starting their journey in dark chocolate. After we have given them a light roast and a long conche you are never left with any acidity.”
