In Ecuador they grow a specific variety of cacao that only grows there and in a small part of Colombia. This cacao is called “Nacional” also known as ,,Arriba Nacional” (up the river). The word “Arriba” (up) was added later when European merchants started to ask locals where they could find this amazing cacao, shortly after it was introduced to the Spanish conqueror, Hernan Cortes, in the 16th century. When the Spaniards came to the harbour in Guayaquil with this question the locals answered, “Arriba” or “up the river” and that's how the name came: Arriba Nacional.
We work closely with smallholder farmers all around the country and great emphasis is put on fair trade standards, ecological farming practices and the protection of the Ecuadorian flora and fauna.
It has helped improve the life of Ecuadorian cacao farmers significantly by keeping the entire value chain, from harvest to packaging of the final product, in the country while teaching them about ecological farming methods, fermentation, production processes and the importance of protecting the unique Arriba Nacional.
The production supports the heirloom cacao preservation project which is dedicated to DNA research and the preservation of rare cacao varieties worldwide.
THE SENSORY WHEEL
The Ecuadorian cacao grows together with many different fruit trees and this is reflected in the taste. It is flowery and nutty and, thanks to its fine citrus acid, is also reminiscent of mangos and oranges. The cocoa mass is processed to a very high quality and therefore has a melt that is reminiscent of chocolate - overall, the mass is very homogeneous and has a chocolate-brown, matt-glossy exterior. It contains all the vital substances of the cocoa bean and is therefore ideal for ceremonial cacao or other delicious beverages, DIY chocolate, in smoothie, baking or cooking.
