At Lajedo do Ouro Farm the cacao fruits are harvested separately by varieties, the seeds are fermented according to a protocol created for each cultivation, and the fermentation temperature is monitored at all stages of the process. The cocoa beans are sun dried and bagged separately. This pioneering procedure gives rise to the cocoa varietals that confer a characteristic taste and aroma.

Owners Pedro and Maria Ângela Magalhães, are the first cocoa producers in the region to invest commercially in the Catongo variety, an albino (white) cacao bean that produces a lighter color chocolate with caramel notes.
