Hacienda San José Real de la Carrera
El Salvador is unknown territory when it comes to growing cocoa beans for chocolate. But what small quantities it does produce are unique, very exclusive and highly prized.
Hacienda San José Real de la Carrera cocoa is an aromatic, addictive dark chocolate with complex nutty, fruity and floral notes.
Historically, Salvadorian cocoa was extremely valuable, but over the centuries its cultivation was lost. The Hacienda San Jose Real de la Carrera celebrates the rebirth of Salvadorian cocoa growing and its ancestral tradition. This 3rd generation cocoa farm nestles amongst volcanoes in the east, very close to the coast and the sea, high-up amongst densely packed trees. Its ecosystem and rich, fertile volcanic soil produce a terroir with flavours like no other on earth.
It’s time for Salvadorian-produced cocoa to be back in the international shop window.
