La Flor Finca San Cayetano Farina Bona 68%
Popcorn or chocolate? Why not combine them?
Farina Bona is added to the spicy cocoa at Hacienda San Cayetano. Farina Bona is a traditional maize flour from the Onsernone Valley, which is obtained through the very fine grinding of roasted maize grains.
Canoabo is a valley in western Venezuela and one of the highest regions where cocoa can grow. In the past, this area was very well known for growing cocoa. The cocoa variety also bears the same name of the valley: Cocoa Canoabo. This is elongated, slightly bent at the end, the beans are purple-white.
They get the cocoa from Rodrigo Alejandro Morales Duran. He has taken over his father's plantation. He has grown seedlings from the original old trees, with which he is now re-equipping and enlarging his finca. He also produces chocolate himself under the name Chocolate Valle Canoabo. The yields from this plantation are currently very low (1-1.5 t). La Flor has set itself the goal of growing together with the producer. They have already received their third harvests of cocoa and are tinkering with the recipe every time to get the most out of the cocoa flavors.
