A new special edition of Arcana to celebrate their new bar boxes and - hand painted vignettes of each bar representing the tasting experience, history, place, and the farmers who grew the cacao.

Arcana is a chocolate that celebrates the absence of sugar and shines the light on the variety of complex flavors locked within each cacao bean. The base is the rare and precious Venezuelan Porcelana, blended with seasonal and complimentary origins to create an ever-evolving kaleidoscope of flavor.

The beans are roasted, refined, and conched, without the addition of sugar, emulsifiers or flavorings. A potent substance that may bring about an unexpected change of consciousness.

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.

Cacao Strain


Porcelana; the name is Spanish for “porcelain,” a reference to the stark white color of the seeds borne in their small, pale green pods. Porcelana is one of the cultivars of the the Criollo group. Porcelana is perhaps one of the best-known ultra-rare cacao varietals, only grown in a small region of Venezuela and Colombia. It’s become one of the most prized and expensive cacaos in the world thanks to its near complete lack of bitterness and delicate chocolaty flavor.

truly outstanding 100% chocolate

the flavor of this chocolate is one of the most palatable and "sweet" tasting 100% chocolates i've ever come across. so palatable, that at first i thought the label must be incorrect - there must be sugar in this bar! the venezuelan bean this chocolatier currently uses as the base for the recipe is very special. highly recommend!

Great snap, creamy mouthfeel, multi-layered flavors

This is a delicious bar and distinctive among 100% cacao bars, which as a group are my go-tos and favorites. The taste goes through a lot of changes as you let it warm in your mouth and chew it. Among them, but not at the beginning or end, is a brief bitter and fleeting acid phase, accompanied by many interesting and sometimes unidentifiable flavors more on the sweet dimension. It's really great. I just adore it. It finishes clean on the palate.

Quite possibly my favorite 100%

Very creamy and very slow melting. Toasty, not very acidic, almost no bitterness. Somehow slightly sweet. Earthy, nutty, bright grassy. Notes of cashew, grass, pecan. Lesser hints of brown sugar. Very good

Fantastic dark chocolate

The best 100% chocolate I’ve had. Worth the (high) price.
