Ritual Peru Maranon 75%
Ritual Chocolate produces small-batch, bean-to-bar chocolate using classic European methods and premium cacao from select sources. Founded in 2010 by Robbie Stout and Anna Davies, their mission is to produce exceptional quality chocolate while celebrating the complexity of the cacao bean. At their small chocolate factory in Park City, Utah, they are involved with the entire chocolate-making process to ensure their values for the highest achievable quality are present every step of the way.
Lightly hued and naturally high in cocoa butter, Nacional cacao yields a delicate dark chocolate boasting stone fruit notes with an herbal, tea-like aroma.
Since 2010, Ritual has been working with Maranon Cacao, who sources pure Nacional beans from Peru's Maranon Canyon. Believed to be extinct from disease, Dan Pearson and Brian Horsely rediscovered this rare cacao in 2007, growing in a unique microclimate at some of the highest altitudes ever reported for cacao. This cacao contains a high ratio of white to purple beans, which lends a lighter color and more delicate flavor to chocolate.
Tasting Notes: Jasmine Tea, Floral, Slight Bitterness, Herbal Aroma & Stone Fruits
