In stock



In Peru, chuncho means “grown in the wild.” Hence, the name given to the beans used to make this Qantu chocolate. Its farmers live in remote mountain villages with a cold climate and descend to the jungle for the harvest season. Chuncho cacao is plucked only once a year—when ripened to perfection—and in small batches. Since the centuries-old trees are towering and grow on the mountainside, harvesting is a demanding endeavour that requires considerable
physical effort.

This is an heirloom wild cocoa variety, Directly traded with cocoa growers

This bar was awarded Gold by the Academy of Chocolate in 2018, 2019 and 2020 and the Golden Bean in 2018.

Bean Variety




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'.
