ABOUT THE MAKER

SOMA Chocolatemaker was founded in 2003 by Cynthia Leung and David Castellan. From modest beginnings working out of a tiny corner of a former whisky distillery, Cynthia and David’s clear-minded focus and commitment to working only with the finest beans has earned SOMA a formidable reputation among craft chocolate lovers. SOMA now has a number of outlets across Toronto, and if you’re ever visiting the city we highly recommend a visit to one of their shops. You can enjoy a warming drinking chocolate in winter or a creamy ice cream in summer, and you can also buy SOMA’s filled chocolates, which are only available locally but are talked about around the world for their creative combinations of ingredients and quirky takes on current food trends.

THE BEANS

The cocoa for this bar was sourced from Ucayali River Cacao. URC is a central fermentery that works with over four hundred small family farms along the Ucayali River, a region that has historically been mired in drug trafficking. But now, new government programs and new interest in paying premium prices for their beautiful beans have encouraged farmers to switch from cocaine to cocoa, which is centrally processed to preserve the stunning flavours of the region.

    I bought this at Cocoa Runners’ takeover of Canopy Market and it’s absolutely delicious – so smooth and eatable. It has a slightly waxy texture which I love.
