Escazu 73% Piaroa Venezuela Bar

The Piaroa bar is a unique bar made with beans from the Venezuelan Amazon. This bar is crafted with wild-harvested cacao hand-picked by the indigenous peoples.

These beans have a quite a story to tell: Natives carry the beans by canoe for two days before reaching the processing facility. Cacao beans from this region are very rare and extremely hard to get.

Tasting the bar, you'll find notes of cashew, cream and tart fruit like cherries.
