ECUADOR

The best cacao in the world

Ecuador is one of the main cacao bean producers in the world. Its quality, flavor, aroma and texture make it one of the most appreciated for chocolate producing countries.

By obtaining these cacao beans you are ensuring a product of international quality.

Quality is at its origin

The cacao that will reach your hands grows in La Concordia, in the middle of the Ecuadorian coast and the Andes, where the Equator crosses.

High temperatures coming from one side meet heavy rains from the other, to produce a humid tropical climate which benefits the quality of the soil. As it is crossed by the Equator, it enjoys a similar climate throughout the year, making it possible to grow cacao of high standards.

We cultivate the land, a family legacy

Eurcacao is a family business that has worked the land for more than fifty years. Currently, we specialize in the cultivation of cacao and abacá, in La Concordia, a small town located in the northwest region of Ecuador, in the province of Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas. Cacao represents hope for this family, since it allowed them to get through difficult times. When the grandfather passed away, the grandmother left the cold lands of her hometown, Ibarra, to try her luck in another area with her children. Upon arriving in La Concordia, she found a paradise with a tropical and rainy climate, ideal for farming. With her faith in a new land, the grandmother founded the Santa Andrea farm and planted the first seed. As the years passed, the family continued with the tradition: her grandchildren cultivate an export-quality cacao.

Love for the land, respect for the cultivation processes and integration with the community are values that stayed in the family business for generations.
