Camino Verde Cacao from Balao, Ecuador
Our mission at Camino Verde is to Produce and distribute the world-renowned cacao of Ecuador, the cacao Nacional. We have restored a 16-year abandoned plantation in the canton of Balao in the Guayas province of Ecuador. We proudly grow Nacional cacao on our plantation which produces a bean with an exquisite aroma and incomparable flavor: an essential ingredient in the production of fine, gourmet, artisanal, and small batch chocolates. There are three things that make Camino Verde unique: The history of cacao production in Balao, our 120 family history of chocolate making, and our scientific approach to farming.
