Criollo Cacao is the rarest form of cacao, consisting of only five percent of the total cacao production in the world. Like wine, the taste of Criollo varies slightly each season depending on the terroir and harvest conditions. Its complex, yet subtle flavors are preferred by leading chocolate makers, and reserved for the finest quality confections. The Mayan Cacao Bar was crafted from eighty-five percent Criollo Cacao exclusively for Stories + Objects by master chocolatero Mathieu Brees in a numbered edition of three hundred bars.
