Know your bean: Chuncho Urusayhua
The Chuncho cacaos that can be found in Cusco, Junín and Ayacucho, are a range of different varieties rather than a homogenous group. The cacao fruits are small and so are the beans (less than 1g per bean) – but they are very solid and known for their high fat content. Our 100% Cusco Chuncho bar is a real rarity, since Chuncho cacao has never been used in a pure selection before. We propagate and raise this pure selection in special nurseries.
