Willie’s – Las Trincheras Gold


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.”

Willie Harcourt Cooze has a true passion for adventure. In 1993, while trekking on horseback through Venezuela, Willie and his wife fell in love with the Hacienda El Tesoro high in the cloud forest. They relocated there and built an eco-tourism venture, including planting 50,000 criollo cacao trees.Now living back in Devon, Willie’s passion for chocolate takes him on a quest around the equator. He buys single estate cacao beans direct from farmers, roasts them in an antique ball roaster and makes them into chocolate using just cane sugar and cocoa butter so that nothing gets in the way of the flavour of the bean.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGO1oEwxYWA&rel=0 Interview on ABC Radio Perth: http://mpegmedia.abc.net.au/local/perth/200912/r487781_2516558.mp3 See more
