The Itália-Limeira Farm stretches across 130 hectares of land in northeastern Brazil's Bahia State. Pioneers flocked here in the early 1900s for the fertile valleys surrounding the Gandu River. This is where they planted the region's first cacao trees. One of these pioneers was 15-year-old Manoel da Silva Filho Libânio, nicknamed Maneca. He later started M. Libânio Agrícola SA, which bought the Itália-Limeira Farm in 1945. In the 1970s, agronomist and Maneca's grandson Manoel Domingos Tosto had more cacao plantations set up. Infrastructures and equipment were modernized, which helped protect the region's ecosystem, as well as produce a cocoa with aromas of red fruits.

P125 Coeur de Guanaja
Made from the same fine cocoa as Guanaja, P125 Cœur de Guanaja 80% is less sweet than regular chocolate and has a strong flavor intensified by a higher content of dry cocoa matter.
This rich milk chocolate's high cocoa content perfectly balances the smoothness of the milk before revealing a fruity tanginess and slight bitterness.
