Have you guys seen this one? Quite interesting link about Amedei – with recipes!

http://www.amedei.it/en/gamber….._rosso.htm

The article doesn’t get us closer to solve the Chuao mystery though.

I found the link on this Danish web page:

That Gambero Rosso article is probably the most detailed piece I’ve seen that talks about their Chuao beans. It’s a great read.

Can you read Danish, Lone? If so, does that referring page have any other interesting information?

Yes, I do read Danish. I just read it briefly, it was basically a report from Amedei’s visit to a wine club. I haven’t got the time now, but I’ll check out later if there’s anything of interest there.

The article is also accessible trough Amedei’s web site. In the article, reference is made to Amedei’s “exclusivity” to the Chuao plantation.

I had a look at Amedei’s web site when it was mentioned here a while ago, but couldn’t find it then.
