Our chocolate partners continue to impress us with the quality of the products they are producing. Castronovo Chocolates in Stuart, FL is Introducing the Castronovo’s Signature Collection of bean-to-bar chocolate to their award-winning bar lineup.
Castronovo searched the globe for cocoa beans with extraordinary fine flavor to create this top-shelf line of chocolate. The first bar in the Signature Collection is PATANEMO, produced using rare chocolate from Venezuela. Castronovo found this remarkable cocoa on the coast of Venezuela nestled high in the mountains where there is a village founded by runaway slaves. The name of their village, Patanemo, is derived from “Paz tenemos” which means, “we have peace”. This is a chocolate to savor with evolving flavors of apricot, floral jasmine, cashew, coffee and caramel. It is a comforting chocolate with a long-lasting finish.
