Hacienda El Tesoro truly was a bountiful place with nutmegs trees on the lawn, to a bank of every type of mango tree beside the house. In Venezuela, the cashew nut is better known as the devil’s fruit, the reason being the seed grows outside and underneath of the fruit.
Super juicy and stringent, it was really unusual, and I planted scores of them on the farm. High in the cloud forest in San Fernando, there was a lone captivating grapefruit tree with huge spines to protect itself, probably from me! It was inevitable that these two characters should meet the grand cocoa Sur Del Lago.

Pina Con Coco. Creamy White Chocolate with pineapple, coconut & lemongrass. Can you hear the warm breeze in the palm trees and the waves washing up the soft white beach? Close your eyes, take a small square of this heavenly chocolate and that is exactly where it will take you.
