Acalli, EL PLATANAL PERU 70%, Chulucanas


Acalli EL PLATANAL PERU 70% Chulucanas. Chulucanas is a name that chocolate lovers should remember as it is quickly growing into Peru’s largest cocoa-producing regions. The beans come from the area of El Platanal. Which is characterized by a dramatic river valley and the Andes. There is a fairly constant supply of water and a humid micro-climate. Thanks to the steep walls of the valley, it is a beautiful landscape for growing cocoa beans.
