Chuncho a La Convención, criollo bean (the nest & rarest form of cocoa beans), from the Cusco region of Peru. Located in the region of Machu Picchu, an astonishing Citadel built by the Inca Empire, the cacao famously known in Peru as “Chuncho” grows on the slopes of the Andes mountains in an altitude that is highly rare for the plant.
All our chocolate bars are GF except for the 38% milk chocolate with Malted Barley and 65% dark chocolate with Sourdough & Smoked Salt.
All our dark chocolate bars are dairy free / Vegan.
The best environment for tempered chocolate is a wine fridge, not the fridge! A wine fridge offers the ideal temperature (15-18°C) and humidity environment. Chocolate is a very delicate matter which requires good care to last longer. Keep your chocolate away from light and humidity, extreme heat and cold. Alternatively if you do not own a wine fridge, place the chocolate in a sealed airtight plastic container in the coolest, driest spot in the house (like a linen cupboard 😉
In summer, in extreme temperatures only, place chocolate in an airtight container, in the fridge but don’t forget to take the chocolate out 20 to 30 minutes prior degustation to bring it to room and body temperature. This way you’ll get the best taste and experience from it.
