Our production is sustainable,
both social and environmentally.
We preserve the Rainforest.
We are helping Brazil’s Cacao production regain the recognition for its high level of quality.
Our cacao comes from Vale Potumuju, located at Mata Atlântica, one of the Rain Forests with the largest biodiversity on the planet. The Cacao trees grow and produce at our orchards under the shade of many native hardwood and fruit trees, creating our unique terroirs.
Our families have been growing Cacao since the early 1900’s and now, through novel practices and techniques, we are helping to re-write Bahia’s Cacao history.

Our cacao varieties are derived from hybrid Forastero and Trinitario species, some of wich have been present and introduced in our orchards since the mid 1900's. In the last few years we have been planting new Trinitario varieties that are both resistant to disease and very productive. They are now being separated by lots in our Terroirs, to enable us to produce individual varietal micro-lots. We created our own unique harvest and post-harvest protocols to maintain the high standards and consistency of our processed Cacao. All the way from hand-picking the ripe cacao pods, to the perfect fermentation time for each harvest; and the sun drying at our new solar tunnels with custom designed sliding mesh drawers.
We also source wet cacao from neighboring farms to be processed at Vale Potumuju.
