casa cacao: PERU "Awajun Communities 74%"
Awajun communities of Utt, Temashnum, Sukutin and Nuevo Salem, Amazonas Region, Peru.
At Casa Cacao we dedicate ourselves to cacao and chocolate, in order to display the changing nature of the bean, converted into chocolates that search for difference over and above uniformity. Each origin, each producer, each batch, each production shows one of the thousand faces that make up the life of cacao: the ground where it grew, the climate that conditioned its life, the work of the producer on the soil and the plant, or the differences in treatment after harvesting, particularly during the fermenting and drying process.
Cacao collected by the Awajun native community, originally from the Peruvian Amazon. Criollo variety cacao, fermented for 4 days in the village of Utt in wooden crates, covered with banana leaves and then dried in the same village.
At the Casa Cacao workshop, we select the cacao by hand, we roast it, crack and winnow the beans, add organic cane sugar and cocoa butter, and then we conche it for a minimum of 48 hours.
