This organic Marana San Martin 80% from Peru is distinctive and unusual. Showcasing some of Peru’s best beans is the principle mission for Peruvian makers, Marana. They also aim to elevate the position of the cooperatives and farmers and with them, the quality of the beans that they produce.
Through their distinctive packaging, Marana have sought to represent the cultural identity and heritage of their nation. The San Martin collection is inspired by the mysterious and alluring Amazonian engravings. These present images of everyday life for those living within the Amazon. They are then illustrated against the magical and mystical backdrop of their myths. You can see gigantic boas and magical sirens next to jungle farmers and villagers on these bars. The packaging perfectly captures the mystery of Peru’s Amazonian folklore.
This bar is a rather savoury offering from Marana. Flavours of asparagus and brown butter compliment a bold, earthy undertone. This is an incredibly complex chocolate with a rich creaminess in texture.
