Cacao of Colombia has been working since 2009 on the development of Colombia’s specialty cacao sector, creating high impact and development in areas such as Tumaco, Arauca and the Sierra Nevada, regions affected by years of internal conflict. Their work of several years with the Arhuaco people in Sierra Nevada was rewarded last year with the Gold Medal as the best chocolate in the world for its Cacao Hunters Arhuacos 72% chocolate bar.
Cacao de Colombia received last year an important equity investment from Acumen Fund, the leading impact investment fund in the world, and it has inaugurated its new factory increasing significantly the impact generated in Colombia’s cocoa producing regions.
We are Cacao Hunters and seek unique flavors and aromas, exploring the various areas of the country, discovering stories that are woven around cacao to share with the world.
We produce chocolates with the best cacao working hand in hand with growing communities for outstanding quality that highlight the origin. Our raw material is based on cacao from different origins of Colombia , starting with areas like Sierra Nevada, Tumaco and Arauca. We are also in ongoing research and development of new flavours that manage to rescue new origins as our recent Boyaca edition. We produce chocolates with different cacao percentages, with and without milk, highlighting the tasting notes, according to their origin.
