The collection: Bolivian Amazonian Chocolate Lemon Grass 70 gram
The bolivian collection. In a series of the Bolivian collection, every chocolate represents a part of Bolivia.
This chocolate is flavoured with cedron, better know as lemon grass, a very común herb in the south east of Bolivia. It is consumed as mate (a hot drink like tea very popular in Bolivia, Brazil and Argentine) and represents the Chaco region of Bolivia.
The flavour is herbal and slightly citric. .
The chocolate is produced in the tropical amazonian part of Bolivia and is made of wild amazonian cocoa.
The cocoa fruits are collected by native Bauré indians in the Amazon in Bolivia and processed in the forest.
The people who harvest the cocoa are paid a high price so they are able to protect the Amazonian forest against deforestation, preserve biodiversity and their culture. The cocoa is fermented and sundried in the forest.
The processed cocoa is transported to the chocolate factory in Santa Cruz in Bolivia, where the organically chocolate is produced in bars. The process of making the chocolate is high-end where the flavours and taste are excellent and reflecting the wild Amazone. The Bauré chocolate is made with its own cocoa liquor.
The chocolate has 55% of cocoa.
