Winner of National and International awards, made with 100% fine aroma cocoa grown in regenerative agroforests and sweetened with organic panela from community associations, the flavor of our chocolate carries the essence of the Chocó Andean forests.
We created this chocolate to conserve a native forest reserve, restore degraded areas, and generate opportunities in the magical territory of the Andean Chocó in Ecuador.
By trying Mashpi Chocolate, you will be tasting varieties of Ecuadorian cocoa in danger of extinction.
Within the reserve and within the cacao crops, we protect several endemic species of the bioregion and among them, we preserve and treasure some varieties of Cacao Nacional. Only in cacao trees of very old ancestry can we find the complexity of aroma and flavor that we are looking for. For this reason, we are Guardians of the Cacao Nacional of the Chocó region and we bear the seal of the Presidium of Slow Foods International, responsibilities we are honored to carry.
