This extremely rare cousin of cacao, known as Cupui, has a creamy, mild, custard-like flavor. Cupui's botanical name, "Theobroma Subnicanum" refers to the relatively smaller fruit, usually about the size of a small mango.
The cupui we work with is grown in the Central Peruvian Jungle by our partner farmer Reynaldo Mayta...one of the only farmers in the world of this special bean.
We stone grind the cupui with a bit of cocoa butter from our friends at Kemito-Ene.
80% Cupui beans, 20% cocoa butter
