Lush, fertile equatorial rainforests are the backdrop for a journey down the Putumayo River, Colombia’s main tributary of the Amazon. Legend has it that this river basin is where the cocoa tree first originated, making it a very special place for lovers of fine chocolate. Located in south west Colombia, on the borders with Ecuador and Peru, the warm, tropical Putumayo region enjoys a heavy rainfall throughout the year.
The beautiful flavours and aromas of our single origin chocolate bars are enhanced by the rich soil of each cocoa-growing region. All of our beans are carefully sourced directly from small cocoa growers and farming cooperatives.
