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.

Cacao Region

Aragua, Venezuela

Aragua State is located squarely in northern Venezuela, along the central coast. The region encompasses a variety of climes, including beaches, plains, and jungles, the latter of which is home to one of the state’s many industries: cacao farming. The municipalities of Choroní, Ocumare, and Chuao are some of the most famous & historic cacao-growing areas of Venezuela, as well as the home of— arguably— its most beautiful beaches. In Ocumare the main industries are fishing and cacao production, while Chuao is famously close to the capital city of Caracas, but difficult to get to. The village is only accessible by travelling via boat from nearby Choroní, and then trekking a few miles inland.

Cacao Strain

Chuao

Chuao, is named for the isolated Venezuelan village in which it’s grown. Chuao is one of the cultivars of the the Criollo group. Chuao cacao is said to be a carefully-fermented representation of the best varietals from Venezuela, rich with berries and a sharp cocoa base, finishing heavy. Differentiating a cacao as “chuao” is not to necessarily name it a pure criollo, but to clarify that it comes from the coastal village of Chuao, an area isolated to the point that its cacao has developed its own unique blend of flavors.

Different and wonderful!

You have to give this bar a try. The chocolate flavor is light, and not overbearing. It quickly melts in your mouth leaving behind crunchy bits of nib and sugar. The textural contrast is a delight.

Soma Old School Milk Chuao Bar

I can give 10 points for the texture (it is surely a winner). If I have to talk about aroma and flavor, I can just think about the DARK OLD SCHOOL SOMA with an expressive chocolate profile and, unfortunately, lack of cookie-like texture for reasons unknown to me. Old school MILK lacks the chocolatey-ness that I was craving. Strong dairy taste "topped" with icing sugar. However, I think it is a good option for white and, maybe, milk chocolate lovers.

Love this chocolate

Did not realize when I bought it that this would become my new favorite. I normally like a smooth texture chocolate this one has roughness to the chocolate and it is so good. It also is good as a sucking chocolate.
