Bonnat Selva Maya 75% won World’s Gold in 2016 at the International Chocolate Awards. The bar uses rare cacao from south-eastern Mexico. The especially bio-diverse forest is a home to a big number of contrasting plant and animals from tapirs to jaguars to pumas and scarlet macaws. The remote position and unique landscape attracted a lot of illegal groups such as drug traffickers and loggers to the region. Selva Maya is the second largest tropical rainforest in the Americas after the Amazon and one of the UNESCO-designated biosphere reserves. But cocoa growing is one of the ways to use the richness of the region sustainably and Bonnat invests a lot of effort into developing this activity.
Balanced and fruity, intense but, at the same time, delicate and full of perfumes of this fertile Mexican soil.
