Decadent, single origin, artisanal chocolate created in Maberley, ON by German chocolatier Ludwig Ratzinger. Grand Cru chocolate bars made of noble cacao from the region Sur del Lago, Maracaibo, Venezuela. The harmonious combination of coffee and plum aromas enhances the distinct cacao flavour. The traditional, gentle processing method unfolds the aromas of orange blossom and cinnamon. These lend a festive character to Maracaibo Clasificado 65 %, which is further enhanced by the final sensation of a light, sweet raisin bouquet.
