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 from the Hacienda Cacao Caribe, in the area of Las Trincheras (Venezuela) that has been fermented in wooden crates for 5 to 6 days covered in banana leaves and then dried in the sun and on the ground for 4 to 5 days.
At the Casa Cacao workshop, we select the cacao by hand, we roast it, crack and winnow the beans and we let them marinate in liquorice and tangerine juice for a month. Then, we dry them, mix them with organic sugar and conche the mixture for a minimum of 48 hours to get a unique chocolate.
