Belizean cacao + milk + Tahitian vanilla: this unprecedented combination is like a wave; the crest of which is brimming with white flowers and jasmine; the swell foams with lush floral hints; the sweetness of the vanilla carries it home before another wave, another taste...
Smell the chocolate. Break a small piece and let it melt under your tongue. Give time to the chocolate to release its aromas. Enjoy. Repeat.
Our single origin chocolate is sourced from one country, one region, and even one single Cocoa farm.
Like fine wine or cheese, each cocoa plant has its roots; an origin that gives it its typicality. A taste that connoisseurs -- you, soon! -- work to identify with pleasure.
Have you ever heard of terroir?
Xibun River Estate, in the middle of which stands a Mayan archaeological site, is located in the center of Belize. The land is fertile, watered, and -- although not certified -- does not receive any herbicides or pesticides. The cocoa trees arrived from Trinidad, Costa Rica and Ecuador in the 1970s and were left to decay at the beginning of the 21st century. But since 2014, Valrhona has helped to rehabilitate the plantation and restore its Belizean richness.
