Qantu – Chaska 70%
Notes of figs and dates come alive against a floral background in this latest bar from Canadian maker Qantu.
This bar, made from cocoa beans grown in Elfi’s home region of Junin, has a powerful floral aroma which melts into a flavour profile of dried fruits.
ABOUT THE MAKER
When Maxime and Elfi first decided to delve into craft chocolate, they returned to where they first met, in Elfi’s home country of Peru. Starting off in Lima, they visited Salon du Chocolat to begin the process of creating relationships with different producers. They then went on to visit a number of farmers and co-operatives to find their perfect beans.
The beans in this bar are an heirloom variety grown in the heart of Peru, near the beautiful mountains of the Junin region. They are grown by the women-led CAC Pangoa cooperative, which was founded in 1977 to organise and educate the region’s coffee growers. As the coffee plants have aged, the cooperative’s farmers have increasingly turned to fine-flavour cocoa as a sustainable and safe replacement.
