FRÉDÉRIC'S NOTES ”This chocolate is incredible. So complex and different, it will blow you mind. In cakes, cookies and especially if you make a sorbet of it.”
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?
The Osella company and its director Jacinto Andrade have been contributing to the commercial strength of Ecuador’s emblematic cocoa variety, the well-named Nacional, for 30 years. From small to large producers, the plantations directly involve 50 families, and 200 more indirectly. Valrhona provides technical and commercial support for these farmers, to ensure that this pearl of the Pacific Coast shines for years to come.
Frédéric comes from three generations of cattlemen-butchers. Trained at Fauchon (Paris FR), one of the most high end caterers, he opens his first store in 1994 in Fontainebleau France.
