In 2021 Puchero presented this spread at the International Chocolate Awards and it was awarded a bronze prize. The main ingredients are criollo cacao and Piedmont hazelnuts.
Criollo cacao is the least bitter of the three most widely grown cacao varieties: Forastero, Trinitario and Criollo. The beans are light in colour and have very pronounced aromas of nuts, caramel and fruit. The beans we use to make this spread are grown in the East Java region in Indonesia.
On the other hand, Piedmont hazelnuts are a unique variety in the world and enjoy a protected designation of origin. They are completely round, sweet and have a much crispier flesh than other hazelnuts. They wanted their flavor to be noticeable, so this spread has 42% hazelnuts, nearly four times as much as commercial spreads.
A Note from Puchero
We‚ Paloma and Marco, from Spain and Italy respectively. After living in London for several years, we decided to stop, reflect and take a new approach to life. We travelled to new places and met incredible people along the way, whose love for the exciting world of coffee rubbed off on us. Together, we created Puchero, which has grown since 2015 to become a leader in specialty coffee and one of the best roasters in Spain. But the story doesn't end there. Three years later, chocolate came into our lives. Inspired by the infinite nuances of cacao from around the world, at Puchero we roast beans that have been harvested and dried on the farm by small-scale producers to make bars of craft chocolate. And so our family grew. Along with the very best coffee and cacao¬†beans, people began to arrive, Good people. The kind of people who give everything they've got to bring our creations to your table. That's us. We're Puchero.
