Amedei Chuao – 50g

£10.90

Extra Dark Chocolate 70% 50g bar

Aromatic profile: notes of red fruits, cocoa and honey.

The highly sought after Chuao cocoa bean is something very special, producing an initial perfumed aroma and a slow release of slightly acidic red fruit flavours and an exceptionally smooth melt.

The name Chuao brings to mind the legend of Mayan cocoa, the sacred drink from the primaeval earthly paradise where the “food of the gods” used to grow. Chuao was a true challenge for Amedei: difficult to purchase and process, this wild bean needed to be “tamed” as no-one had ever tasted it in its pure form. After an ageing period of 20 days, this chocolate – unlike any other – keeps developing its taste, improving its acidity and aroma.
