Direct-Source Cacao

Direct Sourced

Ucayali River Cacao is a central fermentary that works with nearly 400 cocoa farmers along the Ucayali River outside of the Peruvian city of Pucallpa. The region has long and complex history of narco-trafficking and the presence of the Shining Path militant group. Ucayali River Cacao has partnered with USAID and Alianza Peru to offer a premium for wet cacao, giving local farmers access to an alternate market to cocaine.

We are pleased to feature his beautifully wrapped bean to bar collection. Krantz and his team have won a multitude of chocolate awards, and was recently named as one of Food & Wine's Best Chocolate Shops in America list.

Cacao Estate

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.

An excellent choice

This is an excellent chocolate. I strongly recommend it. I enjoy Qantu chocolate and have a preference for Peruvian dark chocolates in general. For me, this chocolate hits all the right notes.
