The Queen from Esmeraldas, Ecuador. One hundred percent. Delicate, full-bodied chocolate, with a slow melt and aromas of tobacco, raisins and liquorice notes. The long aftertaste crowns this glorious dark beauty.

Out of nowhere, Kuná won first prize at El Salon del Cacao y chocolate Ecuatoriano in Guayaquil (Ecuador) in 2012.

More than fair trade

Kuná is a brand of the Ecuadorian company FreshCosta, which – by our standards – operates a remarkable social policy. What we call fair trade is quite normal in Ecuador. At Kuná it means social responsibility – firmly established throughout the concept. Producer well-being, job creation and the cultivation of high-quality cocoa are essential components.

A balanced 100%

As with the “Asociación Wiñak”, there is also a collaboration with the “Unión de Asociaciones Artesanales Eloy Alfaro de Esmeraldas” in north-central Ecuador due to the same charitable ideals. That’s the province in the upper-left corner of the country. An interesting detail is that mainly people of African origin live there. Supposedly this is due to the sinking of a slave ship off the coast. The cocoa from this region is very balanced with a fat content of 7%. Precisely because of the balanced taste profile, there are many very good chocolates with a higher cocoa content. Not bitter, but pure with perfect taste.

Eloy Alfaro won the “Aromas del Ecuador” award in 2013 with their cocoa mass (the precursor to chocolate – also known as cocoa liquor).

Ingredients: cocoa mass, cocoa butter.
