About the Farm

Amid the arid desert of the Piura Valley, dedicated farmers harness the Andean waterways to keep their unexpected groves blooming on even the hottest of days. These smallholder growers have organized into collectives and use diverse agroforestry to make the most of their yields, cultivating their cacao alongside mango, citrus, and rice.

About our Partnership

Together with Original Beans, we pay conservation premiums to preserve the genetics of this ultra-rare Piura cacao. By identifying genetically strong trees, establishing new cacao nurseries, and providing ongoing nursery management training, we can ensure this varietal will be enjoyed for years to come.

Chocolate Alchemy is coordinating and handling  USA orders a pallet and under for Cacao Latitudes.

Please note, all orders have a warehouse load out charge not listed ranging from $100-200 on average, in addition to shipping.
