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. 

Elegant and complex, delicate and deep. The quality of this bar manifests the seductive attractiveness of the cacao beans' origin.  Prepare your pallet to the notes of red fruits, honey and hazelnuts running over each other towards the aftertaste of skewed figs, dates and a hint of toffee. In the Simuliki forest, a corner of Uganda, small farms that are growing cacao are sowing their future and prosperity.

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.
