Summer Travels Collection: The Peruvian Edition
This collection brings together four fantastic single origin cacao bars, each crafted at origin in Peru. In summer 2019 we ventured south of the Equator to meet people growing cacao and making bars at origin in Peru.
This limited edition collection brings together four bars that are not only made from Peruvian cacao, but that are also crafted in the country of origin. Start with a milk chocolate bar from Marana. This is crafted from cacao from the Piura province. Next taste the Piura milk chocolate from Cacaosuyo. Again, it’s interesting to taste this alongside the milk chocolate from Marana – both are made from beans from the same origin, and tasting the two alongside allows you to compare each maker’s interpretation of the beans. Then taste the Chuncho dark chocolate from Shattell. Created from cacao from a wholly different region, this is a total departure from the flavours found elsewhere in this collection.
Finally, we’ve a bar crafted in France from Peruvian cacao. Ara is French for Macaw, the otherwise colourful ‘New World’ parrot, whose habitat Sabrina and Andres are committed to protecting. They try to find organic cocoa growers in Central and South America, who grow their cocoa using sustainable farming techniques that don’t destroy local ecosystems. The city of Tingo Maria is on the Huallaga River in central Peru, in between the Andean highlands and Amazonian jungle, which is where the cacao for this bar grows. On taste, this 70% Peruvian dark chocolate is foremost jam-like, with strawberries, raspberries, and blackcurrants. It has a slightly roasted profile, with a fudgy texture and melt. A spectacular bar.
These four bars arrive beautifully packaged inside a presentation box, and would make for an elegant gift.
