Unique, because absolutely all ingredients to this chocolate originate from the same terroir, the Chanchamayo area in Peru. No other chocolatier has done this. It tastes fruity, fresh and with notes of spices.

The cocoa used for the chocolate bars originates from Chanchamayo, Peru. The first time Morin bought Peruvian cocoa beans, in 2002, it was only a few bags. They discovered the remarkable quality and developed a keen interest in cocoa from other Peruvian regions. In 2004 everything came together, as Morin started working with a French-Peruvian couple who conduct direct trade with the producers in Peru, creating the all-important short chains and transparency.

The plantations from which the organic cocoa beans (of the Criollo variety) originate used for this chocolate bar, are situated in the centre of Peru, in the foothills of the Andes. The cocoa plants grow below larger trees, providing shade. In these forests, the humidity is high and there is no need for irrigation systems. The farmers in the area harvest their beans individually and then bring them to a joint processing station where fermentation and drying are done. Morin effectively buys the beans directly from the producers.

Generally, artisanal bean-to-bar chocolate manufacturers buy cocoa beans, which they process into cocoa mass. Then, they add a certain amount of cocoa butter (often 4% to 7%) to create a softer structured and milder tasting chocolate. That additional cocoa butter is bought separately and can originate from anywhere. Something similar goes for the sugar added to sweeten the chocolate. However, in the case of this Absolu Peru bar, Chocolatérie A. Morin has done something which is very special in all its simplicity: all the ingredients to produce this bar are from the same area in Chanchamayo, Peru.

Flavour notes: fruity, fresh and with notes of spices.
