This CHUAO chocolate is made at PLAQ with one of the cocoa beans recognized as one of the best and rarest in the world: the bean that comes from the village that bears its name, Chuao in Venezuela.
It is loved by chocolate experts as well as by the most novices because it is above all of a rare richness and aromatic perfection and it is kept in the mouth for a long time.
For PLAQ it is precious because it is the first cocoa plantation we visited and we have been offering it in chocolate PLAQ since the beginning.
This chocolate has explosive and intense notes: sour fruits to cooked fruits, then dried fruits but also vegetable notes.
In 2022, he received the Chocolate Croothers Club award for his aromas.
Chuao is a small Venezuelan village, nestled between sea and mountains accessible only from Choroni beach, located a 4-hour drive from Caracas. Small motorized boats shuttle to Chuao beach in 30 minutes.
Each bag delivered to the Manufacture in Paris, rue du Nil, is individually transformed into chocolate in the Bean To Bar philosophy, in a "micro batch", in order to stay as close as possible to the aromatic specificities that can vary from one batch to another.
