Processing this cacao at farm level in mini boxes allows for unique flavor development.
The refreshing blend of citrus fruits and mint & lemongrass is pleasantly covered by a soft woody breeze. Converted into chocolate, it releases the sweetness of red apple crumble strewed with sprinkles of nutmeg and cinnamon.
