Cynthia and David are the couple behind Soma. Their clear-minded focus and commitment to working only with the finest beans has earned Soma a formidable reputation amongst craft chocolate lovers. Soma now has a number of outlets across Toronto, and if you’re ever visiting the city we would highly recommend a visit to one of their shops. Not only can you enjoy a delicious drinking chocolate in winter or a creamy ice cream in summer, you can also buy Soma’s filled chocolates. These are only available locally but are talked about around the world for their creative combinations of ingredients, and quirky takes on current food trends.
For this bar, Soma has sourced cacao from the Tiên Giang province in southern Vietnam’s Mekong Delta. These beans are from Marou Faiseurs de Chocolat in Saigon, a chocolate maker we are very familiar with, who in turn work directly with the cacao farmers. Cynthia and David of Soma say that the cacao is special to them, “not only for its beautiful exotic flavours” but a fond reminder of a tropical rainstorm that sealed their friendship with Marou when Cynthia and David visited Samuel, Vincent and the Marou team in Vietnam.
This Limited Edition 70% dark bar has a flavour profile that revels in spices of cinnamon and ginger, with a stoned fruit edge and a nutty finish. The bar, when on the tongue, carries Soma’s signature creamy texture and melt.
