Cuna de Piedra – Comalcalco with Ancient Spring Salt
This bars is made in support of the ‘Slow Food Mexico’ initiative to protect and preserve the salt mines in Zapotitlán Salinas. The practice, and the mines themselves, are in danger of being lost as the salt makers are getting older and young people in the community are migrating in search of better economic opportunities. The bar is beautifully seasoned, the salt pairs lovely with the cacao from the Malaquías farm.
Launched in November 2019, Enrique Pérez and the team and Cuna de Piedra is a collaboration between friends to create something amazingly special. Translated as "cradled in stone" it reflects the mission to highlight Mexican cacao and build a sustainable and exciting local product worthy of the world stage. Biodiversity is constantly being challenged within Mexico but it is the home of over 4000 years of cacao production and enjoyment. Award for best packaging is well deserved and we're sure many awards for their chocolate are on the way.
