Cusco 100% - Original Beans Chocolates

Cusco 100%

Mighty cacao from the Machu Pichu area, Cusco, Peru

Tastes of dried flowers and grass mark the absolute altitude of this rarest of rare Chuncho cacao, a singular offering from the lands of the mighty condor.

One bar : One tree – each chocolate bar plants one tree
Located in the region of Machu Picchu, an astonishing Citadel built by the Inca Empire, the cacao famously known in Peru as “Chuncho” grows on the slopes of the Andes mountains in an altitude that is highly rare for the plant. Among the rich diversity of Peruvian cacaos, this is a key variety, and we are just in time to preserve and promote it over modern hybrid cacaos that are spreading in the region. Our conservation effort in the sacred valley also leads to the animal that the Inca’s deemed to be the messenger of the gods and requires our support now for continued survival in the wild: the mighty condor.

Your purchase of the mighty Cusco 100% helps preserve an ancient cacao miracle and keeps the mighty condor in flight, because we plant or protect a tree for every single chocolate bar you buy.

KEEP THE MIGHTY CONDOR IN FLIGHT

Beneath the heights of Machu Picchu, the ancient Inca citadel, the rarest of rare Chuncho cacaos have survived the passing of time. Cacao scientists take them to be the aromatically richest beans in the world. Our farmers cherish them as a symbol of their culture, like the mighty Andean condor believed by the Incas to fly to the heavens.
