73% Marañon, Perú Dark Chocolate Bar
We handcraft this single-origin 73% dark chocolate bar in small batches with organically-cultivated cacao from the lush Amazonian province of Marañón, Peru. This two-ingredient bar contains only pure cacao and unrefined cane sugar. The direct trade certified cacao beans produce a fruity chocolate that carries bright notes of tart cherry. The bar’s hint of tang honors its origin and conserves the unique terroir of its farm.
This bar's cacao from Don Fortunato's Farm in the Marañon Valley is filled with rich history. The cacao, once thought extinct for 100 years, has been recently re-discovered growing wild. As a result of this, the trees mutated and produce 40% white beans. The flavor of toasted almonds as a result of the terroir are spectacular.
