Nacional Cocoa Beans from Ecuador. 71% cocoa content.
The exceptional fine flavour and rich aroma of Ecuador’s ‘Cacao Nacional’ is the main characteristic of this origin chocolate. This high cocoa content delivers a surprisingly gentle flavour distinguished by soft and subtle aromas. Through the delicate cocoa taste comes a floral hint and a nuance of earthiness which provides the finishing touch.
Ecuador enjoys a tropical climate along its Pacific coastline, while the Andes highlands are temperate, and the eastern region has the jungle climate of the Amazon rainforest. The Nacional bean is native to Ecuador and is highly prized for its special earthy and floral flavour.
