Details

A masterful blend of 70% Ucayali River Peruvian Cacao and Raw Honey. It required over 5 years to craft a recipe worthy of the Honeymoon Chocolates name! The current harvest being roasted is the Early 2020 bean- bursting with fruit and fudge notes.

Ucayali River Cacao is a central fermentary that works with cocoa farmers along the Ucayali River outside of the Peruvian city of Pucallpa. The region has historically been afflicted with unrest from narco-trafficking and the presence of the Shining Path militant group. Ucayali River Cacao has partnered with USAID and Alianza Peru to give local farmers access to an alternate market to cocaine. Working with around 400 smallholder farmers with one to three hectares of land each, Ucayali River Cacao buys wet cacao at a premium price. They have worked with Daniel O’Doherty of Cacao Services to hone their fermenting and drying processes. There are three groups of cacao that can be found in the Ucayali region: various Trinitario clones, CCN-51 and what the locals call “comun”. The comun varieties are similar to Trinitario, lower in bitterness and astringency. Ucayali River Cacao purchases only the comun and Trinitario clone varieties. (meridiancacao.com)

Tasting notes: Fresh strawberry, caramel, fudge.
