Cacaosuyo is a chocolate maker with a simple mission: to make the best chocolate in Peru. That’s a lofty ambition, but the Cacaosuyo team have devoted the last three years of their lives to it. Seeking out rare cacao and transforming it into the best possible chocolate.
Cacaosuyo’s Chuncho Cuzco bar is crafted from cacao from the area around Andean city of Cusco. The cocoa from this region is known as cacao chuncho, named after the jungle zone of Chunchada. They’re widely regarded as one of the top beans coming from Peru, with a fine aroma that is greatly superior to the hybrid varietals from the country.
Made from rare beans grown deep within the Peruvian jungle, this is a bar that impresses from the outset. This intense 70% cacao bar with a coarse texture.
Made with just two ingredients – cocoa beans and sugar – it’s a wonderful illustration of the range of flavours hidden within the cocoa bean.
This bar won a Bronze in the 2017 Peru round of the International Chocolate Awards.
