Made at Origin

In the Cuzco region, we find our "Chuncho" cacao which gros relatively near Machu Picchu, one of the new seven wonders of the world. This magical region and its cacao inspired us to make this chocolate that offers a deliciously sweet fruit flavor at the outset that slowly dissipate to leave a light herbal freshness. With this chocolate, they may have created what the Incas could have achieved with their cacao.

Maker

Cacaosuyo

Cacaosuyo is a "tree to bar" Peruvian chocolate maker with 100% traceability. They pay careful attention to the cacao they use at all stages from harvest, fermentation to the processing of cacao to make the best possible chocolate. Cacaosuyo is so particular about their beans to ensure the best quality that their beans are brought to dedicated labs for analysis. The cacao beans are classified by each and every strain, to detect new flavor profiles and discovering rare varieties. This is a crucial step because this allows rare varieties to become protected which would have otherwise been lost.   Owned by Eduardo Lanfranco and Samir Giha, they craft their chocolate in Lima, Peru using only Peruvian chocolate.

Cacao Region

Cuzco, Peru

Cuzco is both a city and a department of Peru, famous as the home of the Incan ruins of Machu Picchu. The department is located in the southeast of the country; much of the landscape is made up of high-altitude settlements, especially in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, known as the gateway to Machu Picchu. Cuzco’s primary earnings come from tourism, but gold and natural gas extraction are also important. Native types of corn and quinoa, as well as tea and coffee, are the principal agricultural focuses, albeit at lower altitudes.

Cacao Strain

Chuncho

Chuncho cacao encompasses around a dozen related cultivars of the Upper Amazon Forastero group, now considered to be native to the Quillabamba Valley of central Peru. They’re believed to have been domesticated by the Matshiguenga people, whose members were ancestral inhabitants of the Valley. Chuncho trees bear small yellow fruits with small beans (less than 1g per bean), known for their high fat content and very high-altitude growing region (400m-1400m).

creamy and nuanced

This is a beautiful bar. It is creamy with the decadence of a bar with less cocoa might be. Intense chocolate on the front and then shifting to a mild and gentle herbal character. Very easy to enjoy and highly recommended.
