Chuncho, the rare cocoa bean from Peru: Chuncho is a bean with a history reaching back centuries. This ancient and rare cocoa bean variety is still cultivated today, at an unusual altitude of between 400 and 1.400 metres. We have turned this rare fine flavour cocoa into an elegant, multi-layered single origin chocolate.
Fragrance notes: fruity and floral, tropical fruit mix, caramelised nuts, salty pretzels Taste notes: sweet and mild, lightly salted crackers, nutty notes, cream, exotic fruit (echoes of mango, banana and watermelon), nutty cracker finish
Josef Zotter started his confectionery business at age 26 in southern Austria. He won awards for his unusual creations and started to expand, but then had to decide whether to focus on confectionery or chocolate. Lucky for us, he chose chocolate, and over time, he has moved to make all Zotter chocolates bean-to-bar, organic and fairtrade. He is so committed to sustainability that he built his own steam powered generator fuelled by biomass and cocoa bean shells! See more
