With apologies to Monty Python (and to anyone who might object to reading here about something other than coffee): today’s post is about cacao. Not just any cacao, but cacao fino de aroma from Ecuador, one of the world’s finest varietals. I recently visited the Ecuadoran Amazon, where we will soon be starting the Borderlands Coffee Project, and where once and future CRS partners Kallari and Aroma Amazonico are both marketing this extraordinary cacao.
More next week on why I would devote a post to cacao on a coffee blog. Meantime, some images from Kallari’s processing plant.
