The Amazonas region is the birthplace of cocoa. An extensive area in the heart of South America, between the Orinoco and Amazon river basins. Unusually fragrant and very soft cocoa from this area is one of the rarest on the market.
It is rightfully considered one of the standards of fino de aroma cocoa. All cocoa from the Amazonas zone is fermented to a very high quality. Drying in the sun on wooden boards made from local wood.
*The Indian commune of Lajapela harvests this cocoa on the banks of the Manapiare River.
