Koko Deluxe is made from some of the worlds finest cocoas. Sourced from West Africa, the deep red colour of Koko Deluxe is indicative of top grade bean varieties in this world renowned cocoa growing region. The quality is confirmed with complexity and body, leaving a superfine, true chocolate finish. This African Red cocoa is processed in France, then blended with pure Australian cane sugar. There is nothing to hide or enhance the flavour of this premium hot chocolate with 40% cocoa.
Background: The Finca San Joaquin belongs to the Pacas family since 1906 and covers 31 hectares along the high point along the eastern slopes of the Lamatepec volcano. The Pacas family affectionately calls Finca San Joaquin “the farm of the morning sun,” due to its position on the volcano. The farm itself was named after the husband of Señora Santa Ana, the patron saint of the nearby city of Santa Ana. The coffees are hand-picked and once they are harvested they go to the Mill Vivagua. There the coffees are sundried on brick patios for 11 days to slowly eliminate the excess of humidity. After that the coffees are again hand-pick by Salvadoran women in order to eliminate defective beans.
