Ucayali, Peru, 70%

Collections: Microbatch Bars, 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.

UPDATE MAR 24: We have decided to shut down operations for 14 days for our little team to self isolate, recharge and do our part to protect this beautiful community. In the next couple of days we will work on getting all present orders out. The news is changing every hour but the present plan is to reopen the web store and resume shipping and drive and drop services April 7th. Until then we will keep connecting, post updates, and be checking emails remotely to answer any questions you might have.
