This creamy Guatemalan bar is full of bright fruity notes, with hints of red berries and nuts.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Charlie Burke, the founder of BOHO, started his chocolate journey in the 1980s, when he opened a small chain of chocolate and confectionery shops in New England, USA. Having always wanted to craft their own chocolate, Charlie and his partner, Suzanne, set out in 2014 to learn how to make the very best bean-to-bar chocolate. They founded BOHO after a trip to South America with Taza Chocolate to visit farmers, cooperatives, and local chocolate makers. The name BOHO is short for Bohemian, which signifies their “organic, artistic, and independent approach to making quality chocolate.”
The 200 hectares surrounding Lake Lachua, Guatemala, are home to the Q’eqchi’ Maya, who rely on the traditional cultivation of cocoa, honey, cardamom, and corn for their livelihoods. They have partnered with Cacao Verapaz, the Guatemalan division of Uncommon Cacao, to centrally ferment and export their high-quality, fine-flavour beans to the international market.
