Product Details

Region and Country

Transamazônica and Xingu, state of Pará, Brazil

Story

The Xingu basin is one of the largest protected areas in the world. It houses a mosaic representative of Brazilian cultural diversity, combining indigenous territories and areas of conservation.
This cacao is grown by 150 producer families who belong to 6 different cooperatives, all members of second level cooperative CEPOTX.
Production is done in an agro-forestry scheme alongside banana, babassu, açai, Brazil nut and other local varieties. Cacao production contributes to promote reforestation of native species and biodiversity preservation in the area.

Harvest

October – March (main harvest), June – September (mid-crop)

Genetics

CEPOTX works with cultivars of hybrid varieties, developed at the clonal gardens of CEPLAC: Maranhão, Pará and Parazinho.

Post Harvesting Process

Fermentation is done individually by each farmer on their own property. The post harvesting protocols are developed by technical advisors who control the quality of beans produced at each farm. Beans are fermented in wooden boxes and spread out to dry on cement patios in the sunlight.

Powerful body with tropical fruit acidity; deep chocolate base with notes of star fruit, apple, dates, oak wood, cloves, walnuts and hazelnuts.
