The lush, fertile equatorial rainforest is the setting for a trip along the Putumayo River. In Colombia the main tributary of the Amazon. According to legend, it was here where the cocoa tree originated, making it a very special environment for lovers of fine chocolate.
The warm, tropical Putumayo department is located in the southwest of Colombia, on the border with Ecuador (province of Sucumbíos) and Peru. It rains all year round.
The origin of the cocoa is captured in this bar. You can taste the tropical rainforest. Tibito buys beans directly from the farmers or cooperatives. No brokering.
