Macaé: The power of Brazil

Eastern Brazil is home to one of the world's richest ecosystems. The Atlantic Forest stretches along the eastern coast and is classified as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Thriving in the humid coastal regions, this fertile land is where Brazilian farmers have planted Forasteros cacao trees selected through the ages from ancient varieties. The product of long fermentation and slow drying, Valrhona chose this cocoa to create this Grand Cru de Terroir called MACAÉ Pure Brazil. MACAÉ is distinctive for being exceptionally creamy that gives it a fresh and refined taste.

"The plantations of Bahia are often lush, rich in forests that remain intact, as well as all the cultures associated with the many Brazilian forasteros. When I taste Macaé, it is this mix that comes to mind, a blend of strength, diversity and balance."
