Origin Story:The unique cacao varietal growing in this remote region of the Brazilian Amazon has never been commercially cultivated. It is sourced by working with a co-op that purchases and processes wild-harvested cacao fruits harvested from about 350 individuals and families that live along the banks of Purús River. The wild trees are native to this region of the Amazon rainforest. The fruits and seeds are tiny compared to typical varietals but have distinctive aromas and a flavor profile not found in any other cacao.
