Our premium cacao from Ecuador is produced from the Arriba Nacional bean, part of the Forastero bean family. This heirloom variety of Forastero, known as Nacional Arriba fino de aroma or Arriba Forastero, is prized in South America as a fine cacao due to its unique fragrance and smooth, complex flavor profile. The Arriba cacao owes its prized taste and distinct aroma to its unique, exotic growing environment. Ecuadorian cacao products are great for baking, smoothies, trail mix, gourmet chocolate and desserts.
