Pure Nacional, originally discovered in Ecuador in the 1600’s dominated the fine chocolate market in Europe and the United States. Suddenly struck by disease in 1916, Pure Nacional disappeared and this famous chocolate with delicate fruit and floral flavors was lost for nearly 100 years.
Thought to be lost FOREVER, this rare cocoa was rediscovered in a remote area of Peru. The ‘mother tree’ of this rare white bean, Pure Nacional, was found on the farm of the Don Fortunato in the Maranon Canyon. The 4th USDA genetic sample tested is officially recognized as the rediscovery of legendary Pure Nacional, the chocolate name-Fortunato No. 4.
Chocolate for the Spirit is honored to be one of the world’s select chocolatiers to use Fortunato No. 4 - a truly amazing chocolate, a chocolate connoisseur’s treasure. “This chocolate is intense, with a floral and persistent mellow richness. The lack of bitterness is remarkable” – The New York Times
