Rozsavolgyi Csokolade

Rózsavölgyi Csokoládé a wonderful chocolate company based in Budapest who source their cocoa beans directly from the growers in Venezuela which means that not having a broker or middle man take a cut from the purchase of the beans means that the growers are given the full value of the beans.

The range of dark bills that Rózsavölgyi Csokoládé produce have been given a variety of names of the locations where the beans are grown, apart from Porcelana and the Carenero Superior which describe the type of cocoa bean used.

Seasoned chocolate lovers would appreciate those names, but also Sur del Lago which has been the source of great bars from the likes of Domori, Guittard and Pierre Marcolini and is typically a bean that has both Trinitario and Criollo origins.

Carenero Superior is a Trinitario bean that often has cherry and tobacco notes and originates from the central north of Venezuela.
