About the Cocoa:
Meybol Cacao's commitment to producing high-quality chocolate is deeply rooted in their selection and nurturing of rare and indigenous cocoa beans, primarily sourced from the rich biodiverse landscapes of Peru. The Chuncho beans, often referred to as the 'mother of all cocoa beans' and a part of Peru's cultural heritage, are celebrated for their exceptionally high diversity and unique flavor profiles, offering a chocolate experience that is complex, multifaceted, and rich in depth. This variety, with its mild acidity and gentle profile, demands no additional ingredients to enhance its natural and authentic cocoa taste.
The Piura beans, known as the purest form of native cocoa, are revered for their refined and sophisticated flavor profile, marked by a perfect balance of acidity and fruitiness, with a distinct taste of nuts, caramel, mild spices, and a luxurious buttery texture. The Amazonas beans provide a vibrant and rich flavor palette, with soft citrus notes, traces of fresh nuts, and wild fruits, culminating in a taste experience that is as diverse as the Amazon itself.
Lastly, the Criollo beans from the VRAEM region stand out for their comprehensive flavor and precious aroma, offering a rich tapestry of secondary notes including raisin, green tea, jasmine, banana, and more, without any hint of bitterness. These beans, reserved for the finest chocolates, exemplify the pinnacle of cocoa quality and taste.
Through meticulous cultivation, selection, and processing, Meybol Cacao ensures that each chocolate bar is not just a treat for the palate but also a tribute to the rich biodiversity and cocoa heritage of Peru. The dedication to preserving these rare varieties and their unique flavor profiles is what sets Meybol Cacao apart in the world of fine chocolates.
