Cocoa beans (raw) – Morropon
Whole, raw cocoa beans. Presents an aroma of sugar cane, cherry and plum, with a hint of acidity. Can be used for making desserts or simply munched on as a snack.
This Criollo cocoa bean comes from the Morropon region, in the Piura province of Peru. The Criollo cocoa bean, native to Peru, is known for its unique and lasting flavor with notes of dried fruit. These beans are especially pale- thanks to their 30% white bean content- lending them the name “Porcelana.”
Our beans are produced by a Peruvian Co-op that utilizes their particular knowledge of the climate and region to produce a cocoa bean of exceptional quality. They select and harvest pods by hand the moment they mature. They are then aged for several days before sun drying.
