Bean Spotlight: Tumaco Colombia!


In Tumaco, Colombia we work with three associations through Cacao de Colombia: Cortepaz, Corpoteva, and Bajo Mira. 
These three associations have been doing research with the University of Nariño to identify native cacao genetics found in the region. They’ve now narrowed down nine genetic varietals they believe are the native cacaos of the region, and are maintaining a clonal garden to eventually farm seedlings to distribute widely to more farmers in their network. 
We are excited to see this growth and resurgence of native genetic cacaos, not only because the cacao coming out of Cortepaz, Corpoteva, and Bajo Mira are delicious and chocolatey, but also because it represents more stable economic growth and security in the Tumaco region.
