Forever Cacao was born following my introduction to raw chocolate and a conversation with Dilwyn Jenkins who writes the Rough Guide to Peru and has been working with the Ashaninka for around 30 years. Over this time he’s established a supply chain to export the coffee they grow and when asked whether they grew cacao, he said yes…5 years later and it’s time to share this heirloom cacao with the rest of the world.
When Dilwyn first visited the Ashaninka of the Rio Ene in 1978, they already had some established Cacao trees which were just beginning to produce beans. At the time, this was one of the very first cash crops developed by the Ashaninka here. The variety is Criollo, originally introduced from Tingo Maria and gradually shared between communities as an experiment in the 1970′s. Many of these chocolate trees are still producing and some of the Ashaninka are experimenting with local Cacao varieties found wild in the forest known as the abuelos (grandfathers). No pesticides or chemical fertilisers are used by the growers and they all follow organic farming practices. Peru is world renowned for its quality flavour Cacao and these beans are no exception. It’s taken time to establish this direct supply chain and we look forward to sharing these heirloom beans.
