ECUADOR IS HOME TO THE WORLD-RENOWNED ARRIBA NACIÓNAL HEIRLOOM CACAO. ARRIBA IS PRIZED FOR ITS ETHEREAL FLORAL AROMAS AND DIVINE FRUITY FLAVORS. WE HAVE DEVELOPED TWO DIFFERENT CREATION METHODS TO HIGHLIGHT ALL THIS MAGICAL FRUIT HAS TO OFFER – OUR VIRGIN (MINIMALLY PROCESSED) LINE AND OUR TRADITIONAL ROASTED LINE.
OUR CHOCOLATE COUVERTURES ARE MADE WITH A SINGLE ORIGIN ARRIBA NACIONAL CACAO BEANS SELECTED FROM THE FINEST CACAO REGIONS OF ECUADOR – MANABI, LOS RIOS, ESMERALDAS, AND PICHINCHA. OUR CHOCOLATE HAS BEEN CAREFULLY CRAFTED AND ROASTED IN DIFFERENT INTENSITIES TO DEVELOP ITS EXQUISITE AND UNIQUE BOUQUET OF FLORAL AROMAS AND FRUITY FLAVORS THAT WILL EMPOWER YOUR CREATIONS.
This line represents the closest you can get to Ecuadorian soil without setting foot here yourself. It’s where innovation meets simplification. We have processed the cacao beans as little as possible to maintain most of the original character of the bean. What roasted chocolate is to coffee, virgin chocolate is to wine. This award winning line includes our Intense 100% Cacao (Bronze), our Attractive 85% Cacao (Silver), and our Desired 70% Cacao (Bronze) pure Organic chocolate bars.
Inclusions – sometimes you want more. We start with our pure Virgin chocolate, and add traditional ingredients to create new textures and flavor combinations. See what inspires you.
This line offers an experience more in line with the European tradition of producing chocolate. You still get the amazing floral aromas and sensational fruity flavors for which Arriba cacao is known, but the roasting process adds layers of nuttiness, earthiness, and caramel undertones to balance the palate. And just like coffee, the degree to which you roast cacao beans has a profound impact on the characteristics you accentuate. So, just like your light, medium, and dark roasted coffee, we are sharing this information with you to help fine-tune your preferences. This award winning line includes our Powerful 100% Pure Ecuador, our Passionate 81% Dark Roast, our Tempting 70% Medium Roast (Bronze), and our Seductive 64% Light Roast (Chefs’ favorite!).
Inclusions – sometimes you want more. We start with our pure Roasted chocolate, and add traditional ingredients to create new textures and flavor combinations. See what entices you.
