The Single Origin couvertures are each made with cocoa beans from one particular country or region. Each chocolate brings you an exciting taste sensation and aromatic character – reflecting the soil, the climate and the environment where the cocoa beans were grown. Just like wine, the taste of these couvertures can slightly alter with each harvest.

Belgian Craftsmanship meets some of the best beans in the
Amidst the 3000 square kilometers of forests and virgin Atlantic forests around Brazil’s Bahia coast, the Ouro Verde plantation is just one of the remarkable cocoa plantations that grow the cocoa beans for Callebaut’s newest Single Origin Brazil chocolate. There, biodiversity is richer than anywhere in the world. Local farmer communities ferment and dry their crops with great care, yielding exceptional beans, extremely rich in sugar and fresh citric acids - yielding expressive tropical fruit flavours. Some rare forastero grown and harvested in the Northwest Amazonian intensify the cocoa taste and enrich it even more with stunning freshness. Single Origin Brazil is an open invitation to every chef, to explore new flavour combinations and original pairings.
