Produce Express now offers a variety of premium chocolates from Cordillera Chocolate, a fair-trade producer in Columbia. Their chocolate was specially conceived to cater to the needs of culinary professionals, and works well in both sweet and savory applications. Cordillera Chocolate combines the artisanal secrets of the best Columbian cocoa cultivations with advanced production processes, guaranteed by quality certifications. Cordillera grows, harvests and processes two types of cocoa beans, Criollo and Trinitario. These cocoa beans are known to be higher quality and less bitter than Forestero beans, which are widely used in the conventional chocolate industry. Cordillera Chocolate has a delicious flavor and aroma, high shine and soft consistency. The acidity of Columbian soils contribute floral and fruit notes to the cocoa grown there. During the conching process, the ideal conditions of whipping, temperature, and time are carefully selected to perfect the flavors and textures highlighted in the final product.
