Bonnat – Apotequil Porcelana
A luxury dark chocolate bar made with Peruvian beans created by renowned maker Bonnat.
The Bonnat family have been making chocolate in Voiron, France for over 130 years. It was current head Stephane Bonnat’s parents, Raymond and Nicole Bonnat who pioneered Bonnat’s first single origin bars in the 1980’s. Stephane has continued his parent’s tradition and the company now works with 35 different plantations worldwide to produce their bars.
This bar has been made exclusively with Peruvian Porcelana beans. Porcelana, the purest strain of the Criollo bean, is one of the most sought after and rare cocoa beans in the world. While the bean’s refined flavour profile is coveted by connoissuers, the plants are notoriously prone to disease and difficult to grow. Originally from Venezuela, this variety most likely found its way to Peru via ancient trade routes. The rich, buttery texture typical of Bonnat here is enhanced by sweeter notes of coffee and fudge. More acidic notes of apricot and fruit give this bar create a sharper finish.

1 review for Bonnat – Apotequil Porcelana
December 21, 2016
I was surprised by this bar. My expectation was for something similar to the superb Bonnat Porcelana bar, but this Peruvian porcelana is quite different. Richer and more earthy than its Venezuelan cousin. There’s liquorice in there along with dark woods and berries. This is a bar born of the forest floor. Yet another wonderful flavour journey.
