Kankel is committed to terroir. Going beyond soil, climate and topography, collective wisdom results from the work of people with the natural environment which give those original products their distinctive characteristics. The goal is to bring you on a memorable trip to the places of their origin. The essence of each territory is reflected in cacao beans that are transformed, without any unnecessary intervention, into a bar in which the variety and the elaboration process are manifested without artifice. 

The slight bitterness and the touch of tropical acidity are reminiscent of passion fruit with nuts. The notes med us fall in love with this bar. Its marbling colour is evidence of the fact that the beans were cultivated in between the snow-capped mountain ranges of Mountaln and the Titicaca plateau, an idyllic place where the Chuncho variety comes from. A fina traveller's note: it is still used today by indigenous Matsiguenga people as an exchange currency.

This very fragrant chocolate is made with beans from Peru, more precisely from the region around the Ucayali River. This is a region that has been awarded several times at the International Chocolate Awards, but which remains little known to the general public because, despite the quality of these beans, production is still very limited today. The reason is that the coca plantation there eclipsed that of the cocoa for several years. Working with USAID and Alianza Peru to provide a more profitable alternative to the cocaine market, operator Ucayali River Cacao collects and processes quality beans from a collective of nearly 400 smallholder farmers.  

This line of chocolate products reflects Chaleur's concern for quality and transparency at all stages of production. Their particular touch lies in their choice to bet on the typical aromatic profile of a given terroir.   

Note that nothing has been added to the chocolate and that the fruit flavours you will taste come directly from the bean.
