Deep in the Amazon rainforest in the Orinoco River basin, there are remote areas believed to hold some of the original strains of cacao. This heirloom cacao is harvested from the jungle by two indigenous Piaroa communities. During��the rainy season this area is inaccessible, so all cacao transport happens during the dry season. Cacao beans travel by water on a two-day canoe trip to the nearest road or by land on a treacherous day-long 4×4 expedition. This chocolate has delicate flavors of blackberry, floral, malt and cashew with a robust chocolate backbone.
