DESCRIPTION:

This bar is made with cacao grown along the mighty Ucayali River in the Amazon jungle. Historically, this was a dangerous coca-growing region with a heavy presence of traffickers. A government program to quell narcos activity in addition to being paid premium prices, farmers are now switching to cacao as an alternate market to cocaine.

Ucayali River Cacao is a central fermentary that works with over 400 small family farms with 1-3 hectares of land each. Local varieties of cacao called "comun" and Trinitario clones (never CCN-51) are brought in by boat then carefully fermented, dried and blended to preserve the beautiful flavors of the region.

Origin: Pucallpa + Tingo Maria, Peru

Tasting notes: mission fig, banana bread, orange blossom Ingredients: cacao nibs, organic cane sugar, organic cocoa butter

Maker

SOMA Chocolatemaker

Soma was founded by David Castellan and Cynthia Leung in 2003. A rarity in the industry, Soma are adept at both chocolate making, and also a fantastic chocolatier. At the time, ‘bean to bar’ chocolate wasn’t necessarily even a term! Anybody who knew how to make chocolate were those who worked for big chocolate companies. Soma was one of the first to tackle the micro batch chocolate bar production. Besides their wonderful line of chocolate bars, Soma also uses their chocolate to make ganache for truffles, and other chocolate treats. Soma's high quality chocolate bars have been awarded multiple times over the years. First starting off in a 400 square foot tiny corner of an old whiskey distillery, Soma now has two chocolate factories in Toronto, Canada.

You say banana?

Yes, this chocolate bar have a very fine and not strange banana taste!
Very high quality chocolate, with fine texture and all as usual with Soma, but it's probably one of the product they made that I'll buy more often!
