This mild 100% bar enjoys plenty of tannins upfront, which melt away into a sherbety, green flavour profile and a lovely long finish.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Ruket founders Alessandro and Marco have always loved food and been fascinated by traditional, artisanal production. Their discovery of craft chocolate happened almost by accident, when Marco wanted to use the best possible chocolate in his ice cream parlour. They started experimenting with bean-to-bar chocolate, and quickly decided that this chocolate was much more than just an ingredient: it was something to be shared with the world.
These Gran Nativo Blanco beans were sourced from the Piura Valley of northern Peru. Rediscovered in 2008, the varietal was reintroduced to the region with the help of the Norandino Cooperative, founded in 1995 and now serving over 7,000 smallholder cocoa, coffee, and sugar farmers.
