■ What is the 2% rare variety "Alibacacao" in the world?
Alibaba cocoa is an ultra-rare variety that is close to the native cocoa variety, producing only about 2% of the world's cocoa production.
It is endemic to Ecuador and cannot be cultivated in other countries.
It features a fruity acidity and a gorgeous aroma.
■ Because it is genuine and pure, it is the best
Among the rare cacao, "Alibacao" used by MAMANO in fair trade is limited to cacao that is still grown by natural farming in Ecuador, the birthplace of cacao. Since the time when cacao was called "God's food", the farming method inherited from continuous cotton is an ideal style that can coexist with the nature of the Amazon.
The cocoa plantations are small family-owned and communicate daily with the plantations to maintain the highest quality.
Normally, cocoa is mixed with the highest quality cocoa and other cocoa due to the intervention of middlemen and wholesalers, so it is very difficult to maintain the highest quality, but at MAMANO, it is a farm. We manage everything in the direct flow of → local partner → MAMANO, so we are able to produce pure and genuine Aliba cacao chocolate from the best cacao state in the world.
■ What is slow food?
Slow food is a concept that was born in opposition to fast food.
It refers to locally rooted products, farming methods, and foods, and MAMANO's alibaca chaos is also slow food.
■ The 2017 Autumn Selection is a bonbon chocolate with the concept of "slow food" that will lead to Valentine's Day 2018.
The basic ganache and coating are made from 70% pure, top quality alibaca cocoa chocolate from Napo (Tena), Ecuador.
We use the best chocolate with pesticide-free cultivation, traditional farming (chakra farming), and perfect traceability.
■ What is Bonbon Chocolat?
Bonbon chocolate means "a bite of chocolate".
When you hear the word bonbon chocolate, you may have the image that alcohol comes out from the inside, but MAMANO's bonbon chocolate is a smooth chocolate with a main "ganache type".
