Chocolate with a concience

Patisserie Vercruysse - Kortrijk - Nieuws en promotiesIntroducing the ultimate in single origin chocolate. Made from Pure Nacional cacao.
Lost in Ecuador, Rediscovered in Peru
Originally discovered by a Swiss chocolate couverture manufacturer traveling in Ecuador in the early 1800s, Pure Nacional was prized for its unique cacao scent & fully developed flavor characteristics. It dominated the fine chocolate couverture market before the cacao trees were decimated by diseases nearly 100 years ago. The few surviving disease-resistant & hybrid varieties never could compare in quality.

Recently, Dan Pearson & Brian Horsley of Maranon Chocolate discovered pods of white & purple cacao beans in the Maranon Canyon of northern Peru. Told by locals that the cacao was used in couverture, samples were sent to the US Department of Agriculture's (USDA) genetics laboratory for DNA testing. The lab confirmed that the Pure Nacional variety, thought indigenous to Ecuador & extinct, lived on in Peru. Fortunato No. 4 is named after the Peruvian farmer, Fortunato, on whose farm the beans were found. The number four was chosen because the fourth of 14 samples sent to the USDA was the purest expression of Pure Nacional cacao, the same cacao used to
create Fortunato No. 4 chocolate.

Pure Nacional trees thrive at the highest altitudes ever recorded in the remote micro climate of the Maranon Canyon. Once harvested, the beans are transported first by foot, then by burro & motorcycle, & finally by all-terrain vehicle for quality post-harvest processing. The resulting cacao offers an unsurpassed range of delicate & rare flavor. 

Pacari Chocolate has crafted a line of chocolate bars that incorporates some of the unique and special flavors of the Andes. We combine herbs, spices and fruit with our exceptional chocolate made only from fine Ecuadorian Arriba cacao for a delicious, extraordinary chocolate experience.

Opgezet door twee jonge Ecuadoriaanse ondernemers, Santiago Peralta en Carla Barboso met hun bedrijf Ecuadorian Organic Chocolate. Zeven jaar geleden zijn zij begonnen met hun ambitie om in Ecuador hoog kwalitatieve chocolade te maken.
Zij zijn erin geslaagd drie single origin repen te ontwikkelen met ieder een eigen smaak die zich vol in je mond ontwikkelt.
Zij beseffen dat, om tot een goede chocolade te komen je elke stap in het productieproces moet optimaliseren en je daarvoor nauw moet samenwerken met cacaoboeren.

Akesson's biedt een zeer speciaal assortiment aan chocolade, pepers en een unieke
combinatie van beide. Op zijn domein is hij een unicum en dat proefje in zijn pairings die hij samensteld uit de beste kwaliteitsbonen en de allervreemste pepers op deze planeet.

Original Beans stimuleert de duurzame productie van kwaliteitscacao rond beschermde gebieden in Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador en Congo. Het zijn 70 gram repen: Beni Wild Harvest, Cru Virunga, Piura Porcelana, Esmeraldas (melk & fleur de sel) en de Bali Sukrama Farm (melk & fleur de sel).
