November 2011. After a 4 hour drive with our 4x4 and another 4 hours on horseback we arrived at the Kuna tribe. The effort was minor in comparison to what we experienced as chocolate-foodies, because for these Indians chocolate is sacred and the cocoa is part of their daily food. Our panama chocolate bar is made of the vulnerable Trinitario-bean grown at small cooperatives, it contains 80 % cocoa and is spicy with an earthy taste. Our Kuna adventure was a very important life lesson.
