72% Dark Maranon Canyon, Peru
One of the most ballyhooed varietals in the craft chocolate canon, the recently rediscovered and revived Pure Nacional continues to cause quite the commotion. Once considered practically extinct, the gemini trickster presents two faces, surely equal in lovliness, if not proportion- a 60/40 heterozygous mix of purple and white seeds sing a song of floral and fruity high notes anchored in creamy baritone nuts touched by the tannins of their skins.

Bought in wet mass at small farms throughout the canyon before being transported by burros and motorbikes to a central processing facility, these seeds receive a special hand-sorting and mixing before being fermented in local Laurel wood boxes.

Post-fermentation, a proprietary process pre-drying assures a lower level of volatile compounds post-processing, ensuring the consistent character of Nacional perseveres across continents and palates; space and time; hearts and minds.

55% Dark Milk Maranon Canyon, Peru
Here, they've tamed the Nacional of Peru's Marañón Canyon with a superior, roller-dried milk powder, which subtly caramelizes the casting of this canonized cacao while summoning the supple chocolate more so than its "darker" counterpart- our 72% bar.

Once considered practically extinct, this heterozy-gemini varietal presents a 60/40 mix of purple and white seeds, which sings a song of floral and fruity alto notes anchored in creamy baritone nuts, touched in the end by the tannins of their skins. Bought in wet mass at small farms throughout the canyon before being transported by burro and motorbike to a central processing facility, the cacao receives a special hand-sorting and mixing before being fermented in local Laurel wood boxes.

Post-fermentation, a proprietary pre-drying process assures a lower level of volatile compounds post-processing, ensuring the consistent character of Nacional can persevere across continents and palates; space and time; hearts and minds. Here, a delicious distortion: the modern silk of milk.
