Marana – Cusco Dark 100%
After a decade in the corporate world, founders Zulema and Giuseppe were in search of a more fulfilling career. They had come to learn about the growing popularity of Peruvian cocoa as an ingredient, and decided to explore ways in which they might be able to use their native cacao to craft chocolate in Peru.
Through their distinctive packaging, Marana have sought to represent the cultural identity and heritage of their nation. The packaging for Marana’s Cusco collection is inspired by the painted boards of Sarhua. This was a form of folk art native to the Peruvian Andes whose families used them to pass down tales of their ancestry to their descendants.
An intense 100%, this chocolate presents rich notes of sweet raisins and molasses with a subtle bourbon-like finish. This bar has a smooth, rather silky texture which perfectly complements its rich, bold overtones.

Not bad, but not particularly special either. Overall I found it to be underperforming and bland.
