This is a 70% dark chocolate bar with a veritable harvest of distinctive flavour notes. An initial nuttiness cedes to indulgent notes of cream and apricots, with delicate hints of sweet yam and hazelnuts on the finish. With flavour profiles unlike any dark chocolate you’re likely to have tasted before, this is an extraordinary tasting experience that will have you reaching back for more.
Canoabo is a Criollo varietal, which originates from the south of the Maracaibo lake, in the foothills of the Andes. It is from this region that Criollo varietals have propagated to the humid coastal areas, with Venezuela today boasting more than thirty Criollo varietals. So, when Fraceschi proudly declare Venezuela the birthplace of extra fine cacao, offering the broadest range of flavours and aromas, it is a claim far from lacking in substance.
Franceschi offer you so much more than simply chocolate; ardent advocates of the art of single origin dark chocolate and a unique curator of the highest quality Venezuelan native cacao varietals of Criollo and Trinitario origins, each bar exhibits the aromas, textures and flavours of Venezuelan lands. Every bite is a truly original voyage of discovery of the regional topographies of Venezuela, evoking delicious reveries of tropical climes.
