The cocoa crises is effecting Maranon cacao supply - we need to ensure we can afford to repurchase this fantastic cacao again in the future.  Bulk Cacao prices are currently 4 times higher than usual, and for the first time in 40 years, bulk cacao price is now tethered to fine cacao price.  Strange to be part of the commodity market suddenly, but we'll ride it out no doubt. 


Indulge in a pure 100% bar of a very rare and important cacao.

Sugar-free.  No added fat. 


We've taken our exemplary Maranon 100% no-added-fat chocolate and studded it with massive Flame raisins from Chile.   The raisins add a natural sweetness to a completely sugar-free 1-ingredient chocolate.  This is a powerful chocolate: a slow melting, pure cacao bean and naturally sweet and characterful raisin.


Interested in sampling the Khorog 100 with the rum-soaked corinthian raisins and seeing how they compare with the perfectly plump Flame raisins?  Check the bundle here!


As seen on the beeb:


Intense fruity sours and notes of oak-barrel-aged tannins present themselves in this bold bar. Fans of 100% dark chocolate bars will find something entirely new in this 

this Marañon bar.

Thought extinct for a hundred years, discovered by chance growing in a remote river canyon at twice the usual altitude of cacao in the foothills of the Andes, this bean has been USDA inspected and verified as being a genetically PURE NACIONAL bean known in the world. The intense floral flavours are difficult to stabilize; the bean is notoriously temperamental and presents a terrific challenge to any chocolatemaker. With persistence and a lot of trial, error, observation and patience, it can make incredible chocolate.


Allergen information: contains no nuts, dairy, wheat, gluten, or soy (nut-free, dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free). Made in a facility that uses nuts and soy. Vegan friendly.

Each bar is 56gr/ 2oz.

  • Harvest day on Don Fortunato’s farm is special, since this is the site of the Mother Tree. This tree possesses DNA identical to the genetic marker for Pure Nacional found in the 5,300 entry, world genetic database. Don Fortunato and his wife participate in the harvest and, utilizing machetes, open pods and assist in removing the beans. Sealed buckets with wet cacao beans are transported on Fortunato’s burro from the farm, to the family home, weighed on a digital scale and Don Fortunato is paid immediately before the fermentation process begins that same day.
