Try the bar that won a Gold Sofi award! The cacao for this multiple award-winning origin comes from the jungles of Peru.
The Ucayali river is one of the major headwaters of the Amazon, and the farmers living along its shores grow several varieties of fine flavor cacao. They bring the cacao on boats to our partners at Ucayali River Cacao, where the beans are expertly fermented and dried at their new facility.
This extremely well balanced bar is floral and herbal, with notes of lemon verbena and fig.
This bar is made with our own freshly pressed Ucayali cocoa butter, ensuring true single origin flavor and an exceptionally smooth texture.

OK, there's something special about this chocolate. I've heard the same comment from two female friends: after opening and trying this chocolate, each ended up hiding it from her spouse, to save it. Coincidence? I don't think so -- this chocolate is that good.
Whilst this bespoke chocolate producing process is difficult for many chocolate aficionados to comprehend, the result is a sensational savoring experience
The Café Con Leche is exceptional. Wow! So glad we ordered two.
After trying several single origin choloclates from Goodnow, we came back to this one and Alto Beni. The Ucayali is like coming home, a rich jammy full chocolate that goes down well with a nice red wine after a good beef meal.
Tried with the Columbia and Ecuador, Peru was my favorite of the three. My wife's favorite was Ecuador, and we both agreed Columbia was second favorite.
