Qantu Bagua 70%


AoC Gold award winner with cocoa from Bagua, Amazonas, Peru

In stock



Qantu works with a single variety of cacao that is cultivated by only three of APROCAM’s farmers. Thus, through a direct trading relationship with the co-op, Qantu collaborates with Lucy – who saved her plantation after a devastating forest fire, Don Edmundo – the great collector of exceptional cacao specimens, and Don Miguel – owner of one of the oldest and most diverse plantations in the region. The microbatches of these three producers are reserved exclusively for the production of Qantu bars.

This bar was awarded Gold by the Academy of Chocolate in 2018 and 2021 and Silver in 2020.  It was awarded World Silver by the International Chocolate Awards in 2019 and 2020-21

Tasting Notes

, , , ,



Raised in Peru, Elfi Maldonado was travelling in her native land when she met Maxime Simard, who was to become her life partner. As their love for one another blossomed, a joint venture simultaneously came to fruition. In 2017 they cofounded Qantu, a bean-to-bar project with a meaningful connection to Peru’s distinct heirloom cacao. The first three Qantu bars were awarded with two gold medals and one silver medal at the Academy of Chocolate Awards in London in June 2017. But why the name Qantu? It's the name of the national flower of Peru and Bolivia, a flower which is native to the Peruvian Andes. The word Qantu comes from the native Quechua language and is pronounced 'Kantu'.
