State cocoa, washed, from Doña Dionisia García’s plot, which is located in a region known as “La Chinantla” within San Felipe de León, a town in northeastern Oaxaca.
Doña Dionisia comes from generations of guardians of the legacy of Oaxacan cocoa, she is an ambassador of Chinanteca cuisine, a producer of cocoa and a traditional chocolatier. In its agroforestry plot, biodiversity is expressed in other native trees such as the pataxte (Theobroma bicolor), the achiote, the sapodilla, the mamey and the banana trees.
The creation of this chocolate was inspired by the traditional “Chocolate de Mesa” from Oaxaca; cocoa, cane sugar and a delicate touch of Mexican cinnamon.
Tasting Notes: Washed medium height cocoa (unfermented), with a touch of cinnamon. Notes of toasted almonds, nutmeg and cinnamon. Intense aroma of cocoa, lightly toasted nuts and a little cinnamon. Delicate body and light mouthfeel.
