This cacao grows organically in the jungle of Cusco. It is the rare chuncho variety, native to Peru. The cacao beans are remarkably small with a delicate, soft and fruity flavor. The cacao is hand-selected and minimally processed with care in every step. The fine flavor quality of this cacao comes out in a frothy cacao drink with its fruity tones and warm aroma.
The knowledge of growing cacao is passed down from generation to generation. The family farm lies in the Quelloúno Valley, a rich natural area with a high biodiversity of trees, plants, birds and animals like the blue macaw, armadillo, squirrels and monkeys. It borders on protected natural parks and we are grateful that the cacao is grown in a responsible manner and in harmony with nature.
A fun fact is that there are little differences within the chuncho variety and these cacao beans are locally known as ‘señoritas’. They are even smaller than other chuncho cacaos. These varieties were first cultivated by the Machiguenga people in Peru a long time ago.
Organically grown in Cusco, Quelloúno Valley, Peru.
