Willie’s – Rio Caribe


“Rio Caribe is a king among cacaos. It is grown on the Paria Peninsula on the north eastern side of Venezuela and takes its name from the small fishing port of Rio Caribe. Farming methods are traditional and no chemicals are used. It is an exceptionally fine Trinitario bean, and has really unusual levels of depth and complexity. It’s nutty coffee notes unfold slowly and stay with you long after you have eaten the chocolate.”

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
