Claudio Corallo's Chocolate

Lisbon, Portugal. The Best you can get

On the tiny volcanic islands of Sao Tome and Principe, Claudio Corallo cultivates possibly the greatest chocolate in the world. Sao Tomé and Principe are Portugese-speaking island nations off the western coast of Central Africa in the Gulf of Guinea. The chocolate comes from descendents of the first cocao plants to arrive in Africa in the early 1800's.

The secret of success to the Claudio Corallo chocoloate is the dedication put into every stage of production to transform the cacao beans and create the purest quality chocolate. Once the bags of cocao beans are sailed from Principe to Sao Tome they're are immediatly checked to make sure none of them have broken open or gotten wet. The 30 kilo bags easily pass from hand to hand making their way to the Nova Moca Plantation without ever touching the ground.

The beans are each inspected by hand to sort out the empty or defective ones guanteeing the best possible outcome. For a uniform roasting process, beans of similar size are roasted together with equal amount of heat and time. After doing countless experiments and test trials Claudio Corallo and his team discovered the “magic second” where the cocao is roasted to it's greatest potential. The chocolate of Claudio Corallo is the closest possible chocolate to being 100% cocao.

One of the specialties of Claudio Corallo chocolate is its rarity and limited availability in the world. Besides where it is harvested, the chocolate is only available in Lisbon, Portugal, at C. C. & C Unip Lda on Rua Cecilio da Sousa n 85, Principe Real, Lisbon, Portugal. Lisbon is the largest and capital city of Portugal. It is the westernmost large city in Europe.
