This bar bar is made with cacao from Rio Caribe. Rio Caribe is a select grade fully fermented cacao from the area of the Paria Peninsula in Sucre State. The Paria Peninsula is located in far eastern Venezuela and nearly touches Trinidad. The grade constitutes primarily hybrid types of cacao that are a cross of IMC varieties and Venezuelan ones. We work with and source directly from the producers, Cacao San Jose, and have had a relationship with them for several years now. The flavors of this cacao are really fun and it continues to be extremely popular; there are really forward cocoa and coffee flavors, then deep dairy and nut flavors, and hints oranges and spices.
