HOJA SANTA

The rare white Criollo cacao bean is located in the Mexican state of Tabasco. Harvested under certified organic conditions, the Criollo cocoa bean represents less than 0,1% of all the cocoa harvested in the world, a fermented, single-origin 70% chocolate with zero cocoa butter. This pale, creamy chocolate is nuanced with citrus, aniseed, and caramel notes.

Acquired from boutique organic growers, a single leaf of the native ‘Hoja Santa’ plant is embedded in each bar, creating a unique and spontaneous shape that disrupts the chocolate’s surface preserved in a fine layer of raw organic cane sugar. Considered in ancient times as a mystical herb with spiritual properties, ‘Hoja Santa’ is known for its gastronomic uses and for its medicinal properties as an analgesic and anti-inflammatory. In pre-Hispanic times it was added to cocoa drinks for its aromatic and medicinal benefits. Today it is more commonly found in traditional Oaxacan cuisine.
