Focussing on texture and form, we capture the nature of Chuncho cacao.
5 in the picture to provide an idea of the features of this type of cacao.
Sold in singles.
Each piece is unique, created using traditional burn-out casting techniques to transform these legendary cacao beans - the origin of the species - into bronze to become immortalised forever.
We wanted to give our Chuncho a new life away from it's original environment, allowing you to appreciate and preserve this beautiful cacao. It's the origin of the entire theobroma cacao species and the largest genetic subgroup of all cacaos, so there is great diversity of flavour. Typically, Chunco cacao has a low 100 count, being a tiny yet concentrated cacao bean.
