CAR Artisan Chocolate

Ucayali, Peru

Located on the Ucayali River in Peru, the small Amazonian town of Pucallpa is home to this incredible cacao. Until recently, this region did not have a reputation for its cacao, but rather its dangerous cocaine production. With the rise of Ucayali River Cacao, local farmers now have an avenue to sell their wet cacao for premiums. As a result, this operation is able to produce an extremely high quality cacao, while enhancing the lives of the surrounding region.
