Tumaco is on the pacific coast, in the south of Colombia. It's an area that has been plagued by violent political unrest and drug trafficking for years. Yet, it's blessed with the perfect microclimate for cacao. The challenge was bringing drying and fermentation up to the same level of quality as the beans. Cacao de Colombia has been working with farmers to foster expertise for a decade, helping cacao from the region command prices that make it a viable alternative to growing coca for the narcotic trade.
