Qantu Chocolate Maker
The founders, Elfi and Maxime, roam the plantations of Latin America in search of native cocoa beans with exceptional aromas. Then, in their workshop, they transform these beans by hand into tablets of pure happiness that will surprise your taste buds.
It was in the summer of 2016 that the dream came true, the producers selected, the small equipment purchased, the first import of cocoa beans on the way so the magic can begin. Even if the first tablets are not magic, the persistence pays off as the three Qantu tablets are awarded with two gold and one silver medal at the Academy of Chocolate Awards in London in June 2017.
But why the name Qantu? It is a strong symbol for Elfi and Maxime. Symbol of unity and hospitality, it is the name of the national flower of Peru and Bolivia. Just like the place of their first meeting, this flower is native to the Peruvian Andes. The name Qantu comes from the native Quechua language and is pronounced as if it were written 'Kantu'.
