This Marana Piura dark has all the wonderful brightness we have come to expect from this region. Showcasing some of Peru’s best beans is the principle goal for Marana. They want to do this by fostering close relationships with the farmers and supporting them to grown the finest Peruvian cacao.
Through their distinctive packaging, Marana have sought to represent the cultural identity and heritage of their nation. The bars within the Piura collection are inspired by renowned Peruvian painter, Pancho Fierro. Fierro captured the lives and customs of nineteenth century Peruvians through his extraordinary paintings. The illustrations for this collection were created by a local Peruvian artist inspired by Pancho Fierro in a series of expressive watercolours.
Brightness is key within this bar. You can taste a lovely, balanced acidity in this chocolate. This is underscored by subtle notes of citrus and red berry.
