We traveled up a winding, dusty road to reach Hacienda Limon. The Ecuadorian sun was high and hot. Spending time with the farmers and watching the way they worked together, reminded us of the years of berry farming with our family. We sold the farm to pursue our dream of making handcrafted, single origin chocolate.
Our desire is to spend the time getting to know our farmers and building relationships. Having been farmers ourselves gives us a heart connection that is very meaningful to us and influences the way we treat our customers, farmers and run our business.
Hacienda Limon was different from other farms. The cacao is an unusual Heirloom variety with a delicious, complex flavor.
