Cocoa beans - Nacional Grand Cru

Ecuador Notes of Citrus, Dried Fruits

Only in Ecuador does the "cacao nacional" variety grow, a grand cru cocoa with floral flavours much sought after by chocolate professionals. This traditional variety offers subtle aromas of citrus and dried fruit. You can also find beautiful floral notes reminiscent of rose or jasmine.

Home roasted cocoa: Put your beans in the oven at 140° for 40 minutes, stirring them 4 times (10 minute intervals). The cocoa notes of your origin will come out even better

Freshly picked, the cocoa beans are placed in wooden boxes, carefully covered with banana leaves .They ferment for 5 to 6 days. The mastery of this delicate stage is a determining factor in the aromatic quality of the cocoa.Once fermented, the cocoa beans are dried. They are spread out on the wooden boards of the solar dryers. During the whole operation, they are regularly stirred with a wooden rake for an optimal drying.
