Enjoy premium chocolate made with cocoa from a sacred territory the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta - the Heart of the World. The maker operates from Santa Marta, Colombia and makes absolutely delicious single-origin small-batch bean-to-bar chocolate using Criollo (Creole) cacao from the highest intertropical coastal peak of the planet which is rich in biodiversity and culture. Due to its' geographical position, the Sierra Nevada is a unique place highlighted in its' gratitude to Mother Earth for crops such as cocoa from several original tribes - Arhuacos, Koguis, Wiwas and Kankuamos - that consider the place to be sacred.

Sierra Sagrada's process begins with visiting cocoa farms and collection centres where the beans are processed. Once batches are verified under strict quality standards, direct purchase without any intermediaries is made from Arhuaco indigenous paying a fair price, generally above the competitive price offered by other buyers. The cocoa obtained in a form of dried beans that were processed in accordance with the highest standards of chocolate-making. Later it is processed manually into pure dark chocolate bars with 85%cocoa content. 

In the refining process, the size of the nibs is reduced until the desired fineness is achieved, improving their texture and fluidity and eliminating acidity. Little by little, the native aroma and flavour of Sierra Nevada cocoa is exposed. With a lot of love and dedication Sierra Sagrada makes a real chocolate that indulges you and fills with happiness.

This very fragrant chocolate is made with beans from Peru, more precisely from the region around the Ucayali River. This is a region that has been awarded several times at the International Chocolate Awards, but which remains little known to the general public because, despite the quality of these beans, production is still very limited today. The reason is that the coca plantation there eclipsed that of the cocoa for several years. Working with USAID and Alianza Peru to provide a more profitable alternative to the cocaine market, operator Ucayali River Cacao collects and processes quality beans from a collective of nearly 400 smallholder farmers.  

This line of chocolate products reflects Chaleur's concern for quality and transparency at all stages of production. Their particular touch lies in their choice to bet on the typical aromatic profile of a given terroir.   

Note that nothing has been added to the chocolate and that the fruit flavours you will taste come directly from the bean.
