ABOUT THE BAR
Made from the rare Chuncho bean, this bar delivers a slight bitterness and tropical acid touch which reminds us of passionfruit and tangerine, alongside notes of nuts and spices.
ABOUT THE MAKER
The world of bean-to-bar chocolate has always been a passion for Juan Ángel Rodrigálvarez, a Spanish pastry chef with more than 30 years of experience. After spending many years tasting bars and educating others on what good chocolate really is, Juan decided he could give far more to the world by producing his very own chocolate. One of Kankel’s most principal philosophies is respect for the product, the plantations, and the land that gives the cocoa beans; thus, Kankel’s bars only use ethically-sourced, sustainable, and organic cacao.
ABOUT THE BEANS
The beans in this bar come from the Cusco Valley in the Peruvian Andes, a stone’s throw from the ancient mountain-top city of Machu Picchu. Cusco Valley is home to the Chuncho bean, one of Peru’s rarest varieties of cocoa, which gives this bar such a unique flavour profile. The Machiguenga, an indigenous people who live in the Amazon Basin jungle regions of southeastern Peru, still use the beans today as currency for commercial exchange.
