Description

Elfi and Maxime fell in love with the Piura cooperative, in part because of its members’ scientific approach to conserving white cacao: identifying the best specimens for optimal reproduction and prohibiting the introduction of any other variety to avoid crossbreeding. In this way, the genetic purity of this heirloom cacao, one of Mother Nature’s priceless treasures, is protected.

This bar was awarded Gold by the Academy of Chocolate in 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021, and the Golden Bean in 2018. It was awarded the Silver medal by the International Chocolate Awards in 2018, 2019 and 2020-2021

Cocoa Origin: Morropón, Piura, Peru

Brand

Qantu

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’.
