Description

“Almendra Blanca” translates to “white almond,” as the white color of this bean gives the finished bar a lighter look despite its high cacao content.

This special cacao comes from the 30 hectare estate, used by Agrofloresta for training courses of indiginous smallholder farmers participating in the  Selva Tabasqueño project. In 2014 Hugo Francisco Chavez and his friends started Agrofloresta Mesoamericana to convert a degraded into a diverse cacao forest, which has been used as a demonstration farm for organic
cacao growing in an agroforestry system using local timber tree species.

On the farm only ten local varieties are grown, which are result of decades of selection of native cacao trees. They now represent some of the best Criollo Tabasqueño cacao, comun known as Almendra Blanca because most of these cacao have white beans.
As also some Criollo Tabasqueño cacaos with purple beans have shown outstanding flavor characteristics, the farm does not only safeguard white seeded cacaos, so that the final batches have about 70% white beans.

Availability is limited to volumes around 1 ton/year. From the 2021 harvest only about 400 kg went to Europe
