Cocoa Mass - Nicaragua
Cocoa from Nicaragua - it initially reveals its slightly mild, tangy character, reminiscent of citrus fruits. However, as you journey further, a burst of tropical fruits unfolds - the freshness of pineapples, the exoticness of guavas, and the gentle sweetness of sun-ripened papayas. Ultimately, all of this intertwines with a floral finish, adding even more subtlety and elegance to this exceptional cocoa flavor.
Cocoa mass for your daily rituals
Cocoa - to improve productivity, energy, and focus. The presence of magnesium and theobromine in 100% cocoa provides a relaxing effect during meditation, helps you concentrate, and stay alert throughout the day. You can use cocoa mass as a beverage, to flavor baked goods, or to make artisanal chocolate. Cocoa is a superfood for those pursuing a more natural and healthy lifestyle.
Cocoa is grown near the city of Waslala in Nicaragua. This region has a subtropical climate that is perfect for cocoa cultivation. The cooperative we work with in the Waslala region purchases cocoa from 25 farmers. Most families own around 10 hectares of land, of which one or two hectares are planted with cocoa trees. We are pleased to offer you this high-quality cocoa, and our partnership with local farmers ensures they can sell their produce at a higher price on the international cocoa market. By choosing this cocoa, you'll not only enjoy its luxurious flavor but also contribute to the well-being of the communities in the villages of Nicaragua.
Trinitario - Trinitario varieties were developed by hybridizing Criollo and Forastero cocoa breeds, combining Criollo quality with Forastero disease resistance.
