Ucayali River Cacao is a central fermentary along the Ucayali River outside of the Peruvian city of Pucallpa. They work with around 400 smallholder farmers, buy wet beans at a premium price, and do the post harvest (fermentation and drying) at their central facility. Their goal is to produce the high quality fine flavor cacao while helping the farmers in the area to earn legitimate income from the cacao production. Tasting note: A nice symphony of chocolate and fruity notes, with hints of walnuts and cedar.
