La Cuna del cacao
Our cocoa varieties from Venezuela
Venezuela can be described as the cradle and home of cocoa. Located in the Caribbean, Venezuela is one of the most famous growing areas for fine cocoa. Venezuela's plantations produce highly prized criollos, including Chuao and Porcelana. Venezuela's cocoa beans are among the most popular for chocolatiers dedicated to making chocolates using the bean-to-bar method.
There are two different cocoa growing regions in Venezuela:
Sur del Lago and the Andean regions
Numerous "subspecies" of cocoa are found in both regions.
The names of the different cocoa varieties usually come from the seaports or villages where the cocoa was grown, for example the Rio Caribe variety grown near Rio Caribe or the Carenero Superior variety, whose name refers to the port of Carenero.
This port was once a very important gateway for this quality of cocoa.
"Superior" in this case means a higher and finer bean quality.
However, our fine cocoa beans and our exotic cocoa beans are characterized by their unique taste and high quality. We import only fine cocoa beans and exotic cocoa beans. Below you can see a short description, in which we would like to introduce you to the variety of beans, all of which we can supply on request.
