The famous cocoa village Chuao is located in the pristine virgin forest on the Caribbean coast of Venezuela. It is accessible only with Lanchas, small messengers, and has always lived on cocoa cultivation. From the beach, the path leads through shady cocoa plants to the village.

We can't imagine premium single origin chocolate without chocolate made from Criollo beans. But after all the talk over the years about gradual Criollo beans extinctions there is one place they are still striving - Souther Venezuela. That's where Swiss chocolate maker Idilio Origins decided to focus on. MDs Pascal Wirth and Niklaus Blumer, CEO of Idilio Origins, concentrated their search of the perfect cocoa beans specifically in this area which is famous for its concentration of rare varieties. And, believe us, they know a thing or two about how to make premium Swiss chocolate.
