Soma Guasare Dark 70%, Venezuela
Guasare was discovered by agronomist Humberto Reyes on a small farm in Sierra de Perija near the Colombian border. The seeds were transported and nurtured at the agriculture research center, Campo Experimental San Juan de Langunillas in the Andes. Here they found, unlike typical of Criollo traits that the Guasare plants to be surprisingly prolific, disease resistant with blossoms in 2 years and pods in 3.
This bar is made from cacao grown on 4 multi-crop farms interspersed with bananas and coffee in the region of Rosario, West of Lake Maracaibo. The seedlings are from the original Humberto Reyes samples, same beautiful complex heritage criollo flavors but much easier to grow, with higher yield and large plump seeds.
Guasare is more than a bar, it represents hope in a country enveloped in chaos. The future awaits...
