ORCHID SINGLE-ORIGIN PERU COUVERTURES
Initially used ritualistically, cacao has been cultivated in Peru for more than 3,000 years. A drink made from ground and fermented cocoa beans and flavored with spices and fruit juice was brewed by the Incas, who used the beverage in ceremonies and considered it to have medicinal properties. Peru is recognized by chocolate experts today as a leading origin of the premium chocolate. We source the cocoa beans used to create our single-origin couvertures exclusively from Peru, allowing the unique flavors and aromas naturally imparted by the region’s astonishing biodiversity to shine through at their brightest. Our top-flight couvertures command an intensity of flavor that sets them apart.
