Peru bar renamed to San Martín
I’ve recently learned a little bit more about the Acopagro co-op that grows the cacao for my newly launched Peru 70% bar. They live and grow cacao in the Alto Huayabamba area of the San Martín region in Peru. So, in keeping with the tradition of naming bars based on the region of origin (not just country) established by Upala and the short-lived Bahia, I’ve decided to rename my Peru bar to San Martín 70%.

The San Martin is exceptional ! A huge berry pop and a dusty, rosy linger …i am so happy you are providing Gryphon Cafe – now i don’t have to drive to the Meadows in NYC !
Potomac just leaps over so many of the single origin bars …

My name is Jose, I also live and grow cacao in San Martín. It’s great to know the Alto Huayabamba cacao is used in your new 70%bar. I encourage you to visit San Martín and the Alto Huayabamba, I haven’t been there but San Martín is pretty wherever you go!
It’d be great learning about how you get the cacao from Acopagro if you don’t mind. Thanks and happy Valentine’s for everyone at Potomac.
