Peru Marañon is often called the Rarest Cacao in the World. This pure Nacional variety of cacao had gone untouched for hundreds of years until its discovery in 2010. And is now one of the most sought after varieties on the market.
The high ratio of white cacao beans from this plantation creates a light colored chocolate with very low bitterness and a delicate yet complex taste. Marañon chocolate displays soft tannins with flavors ranging from toasted nuts to ripe stone fruits.
