Introducing Castronovo's Signature Collection, we searched the globe for cocoa beans with extraordinary fine flavor to create our top-shelf Signature line of chocolate. Venezuela is known for the best cacao in the world, having many cacao varieties with high Criollo content. On the coast of Venezuela nestled high in the mountains there is a village founded by runaway slaves. The name of their village, Patanemo, is derived from "paz tenemos" which means, "we have peace." Two families farm cacao of the highest quality in the community. Patanemo stands out for its complex comforting flavors of apricot, floral jasmine, cashew, coffee and caramel that evolve as it melts in your mouth leaving a long-lasting chocolate finish. This is a chocolate to savor sparingly.
These are the last few remaining chocolate bars from this amazing origin. We have had difficulty getting more quality beans from here given the geopolitical issues in Venezuela.
