Weight: 65 grams

Cocoa Bean Origin: Rosario de Perijá, Venezuela

Notes: in the ‘90s on a small farm in the Sierra de Perijá near the Colombian border, cacao agronomist Humberto Reyes discovered an old pure Criollo named after the Rio Guasare. The seeds travelled to the research centre, Campo Experimental San Juan de Lagunillas in the Andes to be grown & studied. Unlike typical Criollos, scientists found the plants to be very productive, blossoms in 2 years, big hardy fruit with plump white seeds in 3 years.

The cacao in this bar is from 4 farms grown interspersed with bananas & coffee near the town of Rosario, West of Lake Maracaibo. The trees originate from the Andean samples, the finished chocolate loaded with beautiful heritage Criollo flavours. Guasare is more than just cacao, it represents hope & a brighter future for a country presently enveloped in chaos.
