Peru Piura Dark Chocolate 70%
Silver Medal Winner - International Chocolate Awards 2015
The cocoa in this incredible bar is grown in the North-West of Peru and has a slight acidity and aromatic notes of pineapple. For Donna Elvira, the search for cocoa from different plantations located in various parts of the world is very important to better understand the diversity of this wonderful product and to understand that "chocolate" is not that of Easter eggs but a product that offers us many facets in its richness of aromas and perfumes from the areas where cocoa is grown.
This single origin 70g bar is made of: 70% Piura Peru cocoa beans and cane sugar.
In the typical Modican style, this is a bean to bar rough ground chocolate with no preservatives or dyes, no added vegetable fats or lecithin.

A must for chocolate lovers, Modican chocolate is a chocolate full of history made following ancient manual Aztec methods, brought to Modica, Sicily by the Spanish in the 16th century. No one else produces chocolate in this way anywhere in the world and no other chocolate tastes quite like this.
Modica is a small town on Sicily’s southern coast rich in art and history. It has been declared cultural patrimony by UNESCO. In the centre of the town you can find Donna Elvira’s chocolate shop just by following the wonderful aroma!
Our producer Donna Elvira is an award winning family run company, established in 1999 and one of just a handful of producers of the traditionally made Modica chocolate. Their chocolate has been awarded prestigious Gold and Silver Medals every year at the International Chocolate awards and this year was no exception.
Donna Elvira pride themselves on using organic locally-sourced ingredients as well as the best quality organic cocoa varieties from Central and South America. You will never find anything artificial in their products, neither flavours, colours nor preservatives.
