Indio Rojo

The name “Indio Rojo'' translates roughly as “Mayan Red,” and is a term used by many indigenous communities in Central America to refer to local cacao varietals which bear red fruits. This name is most commonly used in Nicaragua and Honduras, albeit to refer to different strains. In Nicaragua, an Indio Rojo is a type of trinitario which happens to be red, while in Honduras it’s a more specific Amelonado-heavy strain with some influence from Catongo genetics. The beans are known to be lighter in color than other regional varietals, and produce a more floral flavor than one might expect from beans from this region.
