Criollo Salted Caramel
The pure ancient criollo cocoa bean disappeared without a trace around 200 years ago. Only recently has it been rediscovered within the jungles of South America.
Today, the criollo bean accounts for only 5% of all cocoa beans grown in the world, making it a jewel among cocoa beans - a jewel that undergoes a rigorous harvest and fermentation process. The fruit, in which the cocoa bean is found, must be sought out during the harvest, which is restricted to only two seasons.
