Origin Story

The Sierra Nevada is a majestic mountain range in the northern part of Colombia, encompassing an incredible variety of ecosystems and home to several different indigenous groups including the Arhuacos. Cacao de Colombia has been providing technical assistance and a stable market to farmers in the Sierra Nevada for the last 6 years, and recently installed a state-of-the-art fermentation and drying center in the lower-altitude community of Macondo, where they primarily source cacao from approximately 40 farming families in the department of Magdalena. The beans boat a balance of fruits and nuts in the cacao from Sierra Nevada, with a smooth cocoa baseline.
