Grand Cru couverture made from noble cacao originating in Sambirano, Madagascar. The organization “Mevasoa” is the name of the women entity, who still supply Felchlin with fine flavored cacao. The cacao Cooperative “Mateza” was created in order to meet local growth objectives. Ninety farmers from four villages in the region Ambanja work together with the Cooperative Sambirano Mateza to provide Felchlin with noble cacao. They grow cacao in accordance with strict quality and sustainable criteria on approximately 70 hectares, thus ensuring an important source of income. The Government of Madagascar is investing in roads and infrastructure to promote and intensify cacao exports; thereby simplifying transport for farmers, replacing current ox carts and increasing accessibility in otherwise difficult to reach regions.
Main harvest: November to December
The intensive, rich cacao flavor is complimented with a unique fruity bouquet of blond orange, cassis, lime and a nuance of grapefruit. The refreshing multi-layered fruit acidity distinguishes this Grand Cru couverture.
