The remote Guatemalan village of San Juan Chivite is perched on the side of a mountain, accessible only by foot. Part of the journey requires crossing a long, narrow wooden and steel cable footbridge across which all harvested cacao is carried by hand. The villagers, who are committed to producing high-quality cacao, built a new facility themselves with technical advice from an Exporter, cacao Verapaz. The chocolate made from this bean has a delightfully bright fruit flavor, with light acidity and a mellow, dark fruit finish.
Flavor Notes: candied lemon, banana, mango.
