Ucayali River Cacao

This central fermentary works with cacao farmers along the Ucayali River, which is outside of the city of Pucallpa, in eastern Peru. Since their inception, Ucayali River Cacao has partnered with both USAID and Alianza Peru to offer local farmers access to an alternate market in a region plagued for too long by narcotraffickers. Buying wet cacao at a premium price takes a lot of work off the farmers’ plates without taking away income, and allows the processing team to ensure even fermentation & drying of all beans. Working with a few hundred smallholder farmers, the team at Ucayali River has been able to achieve a deeply flavorful cacao, with hugely varying flavor profiles depending upon the work of the chocolate maker.
