A perfect quality Peruvian cacao
A dazzling example of special, locally grown Peruvian cacao, Original Beans Piura Malingas 75% is here thanks to our intrepid Bean Team and partners. Our cacao hunter, Jan, came across the Malingas beans in 2014, and impressed by the richness of fruit flavor and nice acidity, he set out to see where the beans were grown.
On his first trip to the village of Malingas, Jan was surprised that in the middle of the white cacao growing region, the beans of Malingas are not white at all. The next surprise, in contrast to many other farmer associations in the region, this association did not have a professional fermentation and drying center. Rather, they were processing the cacao at the house of one of the members—at home but at quite a high-level due to the farmers’ experience. Alongside the rightfully proud farmers, we collectively bring you a perfect quality Peruvian cacao.
