Mike & Beckey’s Peruvian bar is made from some rare wild criollo cacao beans found in the region of the Rio Marañón. An intense chocolate with a floral aroma and notes of yellow fruit.
On the ecological packaging a Rhino Pleco is pictured. The mainstream source of the Amazon is known for an extraordinary diversity of its fish population. One of them is the Rhino Pleco, a peculiar looking catfish with two tiny horns and alligator-like ridges along the sides of their body. They have picked it for its color ranging from dark to light brown – that is why it is also called ‘Chocolate Pleco’.
