  • Description

    Delicate and crunchy pieces of Piura cocoa beans have been roasted by Original Beans to bring out this rare cacao’s delicate flavours.

    The nibs have a refreshing fruity note that mixes zesty citrus notes with sweet cherries. The pieces of nib have are intense and almost savoury with a hint of toasted hazelnuts.

    These cocoa beans are Piura Porcelana bean. This unique varietal grown in the Piura Valley of Peru and was almost extinct when it was rediscovered. Original Beans has been working with farmers in the region since 2007, helping them to restore and grow the ultra-rare beans.

    They can be used as a replacement for nuts and make a great addition to most breakfasts, salads, muffins, pastries, ice cream and even chocolate. Simply sprinkle them on top for an added fruity crunch. Incorporate them in dishes like you would with fresh or dried fruit. Sweet or savoury, the Menakao cocoa nibs are diverse enough to be used in most dishes. Or just have them as they are.
