Soma - Dark Chocolate - Arcana 100% Porcelana BlendSoma
A new special edition of Arcana to celebrate our new bar boxes - 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 flavours 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 flavour.
The beans are roasted, refined, and conched, without the addition of sugar, emulsifiers or flavourings. A potent substance that may bring about an unexpected change of consciousness.
Cacao content: 100%
Tasting notes: cashews, licorice, pink grapefruit, grass

We don’t think that there's a need to advertise this brand a lot. This small-batch chocolate maker from Toronto is very well-known among chocolate lovers and we were bombarded with numerous requests to add them to our chocolate collection. Soma was consistently collecting International Chocolate Awards including Dark Chocolate Gold for its Guasare bar in 2018.
Since this is the first Venezuelan 100% I have ever tasted, I can only comment that I taste notes of fruit and grass. It’s very pleasant but not as punchy as some of the Ecuadorian and Peruvian bars I take regularly. The texture is fantastic.
