Impulsa Bacao

This project was established to help bring cacao-producing families out of poverty and generate a positive social & environmental impact in the region of Boyaca, Colombia. To help these farming families generate profits from their cacao, Impulsa Bacao built a new fermentation and drying facility in the town of San Pablo de Borbur. They also provided technical assistance to help farmers identify fine flavor cacao varietals, and taught them best practices for caring for such varietals. During harvest season, every day they send a truck to dozens of farms to pick up the freshly-harvested wet cacao beans, and bring them to the facility for proper processing. Despite how young the project is, farmers are excited about the possibilities it shows for growing fine flavor cacao into an important cash crop in the region.
