HUILA – COLOMBIA

Thanks to its climate and geographical condition, the department of Huila has been consolidated during the last decade as a reference point of agro-industrial production. Situated in the middle of two mountain ranges, it is home to the source of the two most important rivers in Colombia, and, as such, known as the river star of Colombia.

The cocoa from Huila is characterised by its delicate acidity, mild cocoa flavour, with a balanced bitterness followed by fruity notes, low astringency, and a subtle nutty flavour. It makes for a cocoa liquor, which is fluid, mild and unctuous.
