Porcelana is the name of one of the most famous heirs from Venezuela. This rare variety cocoa bean with its beautifully light cocoa pod has a sublime, nutty aroma. Chocolate Tree has not yet been able to visit Venezuela, but they know from their supplier Campo Lindo that the farmers come from La Orquidea, Zulia Sur de Lago and that they receive a premium of $6.40 per kg for their authentic Porcelana bean.
