This bar opens with an aroma of fudge and deep tropical fruits, before revealing a flavour profile of sweet berries, hazelnuts, and a chocolatey finish.
ABOUT THE MAKER
The idea for Cuna de Piedra began on March 14th, 2019, when Enrique Perez (a food processing engineer and consultant) and Vicky Gonzalez (designer and brand strategist) spoke on the phone about a dream they shared. They dreamed of making a meaningful product, a product that would raise Mexico’s international reputation as a country of bountiful natural resources and high-quality workmanship. And that is what they have achieved, crafting proudly 100% Mexican bars and sourcing their beans direct from farmers and cooperatives around Mexico.
The beans in this bar are sourced from Malaquias and Carlos, who together run the growing and processing of several hundred cocoa trees on their 2-hectare estate in Comalcalco, Tabasco. The beans are harvested, fermented, dried, cleaned, and packed at origin by the farmers and their families, keeping as much of the added value as possible within the farm itself.
