Collections: Microbatch 2019, Newly released

NEW*

This bar is made with cacao grown along the mighty Ucayali River in the Amazon jungle. Historically this was a dangerous coca-growing region with a heavy presence of traffickers. A government program to quell narcos activity in addition to being paid premium prices, farmers are now switching to cacao as an alternate market to cocaine.

Ucayali River Cacao is a central fermentary that works with over 400 small family farms with 1-3 hectares of land each. Local varieties of cacao called “comun” and Trinitario clones (never CCN-51) are brought in by boat then carefully fermented, dried and blended to preserve the beautiful flavours of the region.
