Ocumare

Originally coming from the Ocumare de la Costa valley.

Ocumare is a very special Criollo cocoa characterized by its highly aromatic flavour. A homogenous uniformed drying and fermentation procedure improves and underlines the flavour of this cocoa of Criollo origin.

It is a mix of Criollo and Trinitario with a strong Criollo tendency, a light and pleasant cocoa with a minimum note of acidity, but without any sharpness.

Flavour Profile

Due to its aroma and its robustness Ocumare is common and popular to find in Venezuela. The beans show notes of almonds and cherries similar to the variety Chuao. You can experience a peatiness sensation, kind of “spicy soil” and a full bodied aroma.

Ocumare is more robust in character than the pure Criollos. Flavours can vary from peaches and slightly red fruits to cashews, peanuts or spice and pepper.
