A family plantation
Almost nothing has changed at the Los Anconès Plantation since 1903 when the Rizek family began growing an aromatic variety of cocoa tree there. They are grown with respect for the trees and under the protection of palm trees, without the use of fertilisers or pesticides, thus producing organic beans. The beans are fermented for six or seven days and are left to dry on trays in the sun. Thanks to the sliding roof of the dryers, no moisture is reabsorbed by the beans.
Plantation manager Miguel Tejada also ensures that the workers have decent working conditions and that there no children work at the Plantation.
The partnership between the plantation and the CLUIZEL Manufacture, which dates back to 2002 and is based on complementary technical expertise, allows these organic cocoa beans to reveal the full splendour of their aromatic notes and respects the commitment to “Noble Ingredients” – a unique commitment to chocolate quality.
