Porcelana has long been considered "The Holy Grail" of cacao, but these beans are some of the rarest of the rare. Dedicated to preserving heirloom varietals of Porcelana, the Estación Experimental Chama germoplasm bank near Lake Maracaibo, Venezuela guards most of each year's harvest to replant. Soma secures but a few bags of beans each year. The complex and delicately nuanced flavors are unforgettable.

Named for the mythical ritual drink of the Vedic tradition, Soma was purported to bestow immortality. No wonder David Castellan and Cynthia Leung were intrigued enough in 2003 to pledge their futures to the idea of creating a place to make and enjoy this magical elixir! Starting in a small corner of a former whisky distillery, they began making anything and everything chocolate. They've now graduated to a small chocolate factory and 2 stores in Toronto. As far as that immortality thing--the jury's still out, but don't stop eating these delicious bars just in case!
