Tumaco Nariño Bar
Sourced from the Southern Pacific Coast of Colombia, the Tumaco Nariño bar boasts rich flavors from beans grown with transformative labor and sustainability practices. As the region is naturally abundant with cacao, the community cooperatively produces superbly high-quality cacao beans with complex flavor profiles, including notes of whiskey, caramel, and molasses.
In this region, cacao farming has come to represent an important alternative to coca cultivation and the necessary dependence on cooperation with organized crime that this crop entails. For more on this transformative social/agricultural effort, follow the "Learn More" link below.
Grown from October to December, these cacao beans are hand sorted and fermented in wooden boxes at an average altitude of 20 feet. The cacao plants are intercropped with timber, fruit trees, corn, and beans to preserve Tumaco’s vibrant biodiversity.
With an emphasis on conscious labor practices, sustaining the region’s biodiversity, and attention to flavor—each Tumaco Nariño bar is a testament to the interdependence of craft chocolate-making and exemplary fine cacao agriculture.
