This chocolate bar highlights the sophistication of goat milk. Its ingredients join in a ballet of delectable flavours, without one encroaching on the other. Canadian goat milk provides an elegance that beautifully envelops the aromas of cacao, all in a barely sweet bite. Elfi and Maxime concocted this bar with ancestral Bagua cacao beans, which is bound to will delight lovers of goat milk and cheeses. We dare you not to eat the entire bar all at once!

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'.
