Description

The cocoa from the remote Venezuelan village of Ocumare De La Costa has been famous for its cocoa since the 1600’s.  Since we founded Amano, it has been an honor to be able to make chocolate from the rarified cocoa.  The flavor has always been on of the world’s finest, and we have watched many people swoon as the waves of Ocumare’s incredible chocolatey flavor gently overwhelm their senses.

I have found the farmers of Ocumare and its neighboring valleys to be very kind and hospitable.  For this reason, it is one of my favorite places to visit.  I truly believe that this chocolate accurately reflects the pride, sensitivity, and personality of the humble famers who grow the cocoa that we use to make this chocolate.  As you taste it, I am sure you will come to love as much as I do, not only the chocolate but the farmers and land from which it comes.

 

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.

Size: 3oz (85g)
