San Martin De Pangoa, Peru 85% Dark Chocolate


Our San Martin de Pangoa, Peru 85% Dark Chocolate Bar is truly for the dark chocolate connoisseur--the one who can perceive a world of flavor in every small, exploratory bite. Crafted from native, organic cacao varietals grown for generations by family farmers in the Upper Amazon region of Peru, this high cocoa content dark chocolate bar explodes with bright, citrusy flavors balanced out by a smooth and creamy body. We directly source these premium cacao beans with their delicious, terroir-driven flavor profile, then add only organic cocoa butter and just enough organic cane sugar to bring out the best expression of that profile.

For a deeper investigation into this Peruvian cacao flavor profile, try the companion bar for comparison and contrast -- our San Martin de Pangoa, Peru 70% Dark Chocolate Bar. The 70% version contains a bit more sugar, which mellows the tart, citrusy flavor notes present in our 85% bar into a jammy, berry fruit flavor. Tasting the two side by side is its own culinary class in appreciating the impact a little more or a little less sugar has on chocolate flavor.
