behind the bean
Since cacao originates from South America, African cacaos were imported there and are mostly referred to as Forasteros (“strangers”). We prefer the terms that refer back to the South American roots, in this case Amelonado cacao from the upper Amazon.
Virunga Park’s lava flows, savannas, and tropical forests have shaped a terroir complex in flavours and politics. Since 2008, our Bean Team has led the effort to develop a sustainable cacao sector in the Virunga region.
