Description

Nestled on the Caribbean coast of Venezuela is the little village of Cuyagua.  The cocoa from Cuyagua has been famous since the time age of the Portuguese pirates who traded these same beans.  I have the immense honor to make chocolate with Cuyagua’s rarified beans.  What I treasure most, however, is the heart of one of Cuyagua’s cocoa farmers who has the heart of a poet.

After I handed this farmer a chocolate bar made with cocoa he helped grow and harvest, he said: “This chocolate is like a river.”  When I asked him why, he said, “This Chocolate takes you on a journey of flavor and it goes to all these wild and wondrous places.  It goes on and on like a river.”  It is my hope that you enjoy Cuyagua’s river of flavor like Cuyagua’s humble cocoa farmer did.

April 22, 2024 Notice: Due to shortages in the world cocoa crop, prices for commodity cocoa have increased more than four-fold in the last 12 months, from $2,700/ton to over $12,500/ton. Amano, sourcing extremely high quality cocoa, has always paid a premium over commodity prices to create chocolate using the very best cocoa. Due to the unfortunate reality of the cocoa market, we will soon be adjusting our pricing to accommodate the current state of the market.
