An incredibly earthy bar with subtle vegetal hints as well as a touch of hops. This bar is as curious as it is delicious. It is distinctly evocative of the cacao from this region close to the Ecuadorian border.
ABOUT THE MAKER
After a decade in the corporate world, founders Zulema and Giuseppe went in search of a more fulfilling career. They learned about the growing popularity of Peruvian cacao 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, they have sought to represent the cultural identity and heritage of their nation. The packaging for Marana’s San Martin collection is inspired by the mysterious and fascinating ancient Amazonian engravings that reflect scenes from daily life of the Peruvian Amazon.
The beans in this bar have been sourced from Tarapoto, a small town in the San Martin province of northern Peru.
