The collection: Bolivian Amazonian Chocolate Locoto 70 gram
The bolivian collection. In a series of the Bolivian collection, every chocolate represents a part of Bolivia.
This chocolate is flavoured with the locoto pepper which represents the subtropical valley’s between the Amazon and the highlands of the Andes in Bolivia.
The locoto is a spicy ingredient in the traditional cuisine. The flavour is at first chocolate and after moments spicy in the back of the mouth, very interesting.
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 65% of cocoa.
