Shattell is an artisan chocolate producer in Lima Peru. We use only criollo cacao beans from the Peruvian Amazon region. This distinctive and rare variety is recognized around the world for its excellent flavor and aroma.
Using organic cacao from specific regions results in premium quality products that embody the true flavors and aromas of Peruvian chocolate.
All our chocolates are single origin and USDA certified organic.
No blends allow the distinctive taste and characteristics of each individual variety to shine. We work with the farmers, teaching them how to make their own hot chocolate, bonbons and bars, which adds to the value of their cacao.
We source our beans directly from the farmers and give them a fair price for their finest cacao beans. As our business grows, the growers’ incomes increase, improving their quality of life.
Kimbiri - Ayacucho: Located in the south central region of Peru. Flavor Profile: Made using criollo beans from the south-central region of Peru.
