Qantu is a chocolate maker based in Montreal. Qantu was started by Elfi and Maxime in 2016. This pair fell in love with bean to bar chocolate after researching cocoa after their first plantation visit in 2014. The immense passion and pride of the cocoa producers inspired them to create bean to bar chocolate. Qantu focuses on Peruvian cacao for the moment, which is where Maxime and Elfi met over a decade ago in Elfi’s home country. The name “ Qantu” (pronounced “Kantu”) derives from the name of the national flower of Peru and Bolivia. The word comes from the native language of the Peruvian Andes, Quechua, it represents a symbol of unity and hospitality.

Cacao Region

Junín, Peru

Junin is a department in central Peru, smack in between the Andes Mountains and the Amazon Rainforest. Bordered in the west by the Peruvian capital, Lima, Junin has a mix of industries and climates; its agricultural & mining sectors have become integral to Lima’s economy in recent decades. Heavy metal mining and processing have begun having serious effects upon the surrounding communities, however, so agriculture is seen as having a more promising future. In Junin’s mountain valleys, farmers tend to grow local crops such as potatoes and corn, while the more tropical regions are home to coffee, precious woods, and a variety of fruit production.

Cacao Estate

CAC Pangoa

CAC Pangoa is a cacao co-op in the Junín region of Peru, with more than 700 contributing members. Pangoa originally focused on coffee beans, but in the decades since their founding in 1977, they’ve also become dedicated to preserving their land through the cultivation of cacao. With the help of the organization Conservation Cacao, CAC Pangoa is planting more & more fine flavor varietals of cacao to sustainably and safely replace their ageing coffee. These days, the cooperative only produces organic-certified Fair Trade cacao, and they’re starting to turn to it more & more as their coffee trees feel the devastating effects of climate change.

Unique, tangy Peru bar

This was an unusual but ultimately very pleasant bar. Distinct notes of dried apple and apple cider vinegar dominated, but with satisfying richness. If you don't like chocolate with more pronounced sourness, this might not be your thing. But if you love the red fruit acidity of Madagascar bars, give this a try!


I tasted the figs, dates, and roses, but mainly got a big punch of red wine flavor. I agree with E.R. about the tart apple cider vinegar flavor. Almost like a tangy tamarind sauce. It's definitely an interesting bar.

Complex and smooth

In general, I can't say enough about Qantu chocolate. I have tried many of ther bars and they are all excellent. This bar is no exception. Less of the cherry/berry flavor you find in some of their other bars but layers of more subtle flavors. I put this one in a taste test with four other bars from quality makers with a group of friends and this one was the clear winner. The tasting notes describe figs, dates and roses and that is very close to what the group described. Very creamy texture and complex but subtle flavors. One taste creates a journey.

Intense Flavor

I was amazed by how prominently the flavor notes stood out in this one. Normally I'm racking my brain to put notes to a bar of chocolate and can't go beyond "this is incredible," but this was just an explosion of flavor. This would be the perfect bar to introduce people to fine chocolate and distinguishing tasting notes. The honey notes overpowered it for me, it tasted like the really good smooth orange blossom honey. The figs and roses notes were less prominent. It was super syrupy without being overly sweet, it was perfect!
