Mesoamerica is widely considered the birthplace of the Theobroma, the beautiful tree that seeds cacao which we use to make chocolate. More recent archaeological studies suggest modern day Ecuador may be true place of origin of the Theobroma. The recent discovers have found ancient pottery dating back to 3,000 BC that contained cacao residues. Today, Ecuadorian cacao is renowned for its Ariba Nacional variety. This variety of cacao is rich in flavors and belongs to the criollo strain. In the early 20th century, the Nacional variety of cacao was nearly wiped out by disease, but a remnant population was rediscovered in 2007. This discovery has allowed for the revival of this heirloom variety, celebrated for its unique flavor and historical significance. With such rich history, Ecuador's single origin chocolate bars, offer a taste of rarity. Discover the best of these bars in this blog, each bar is rich in flavors that only Ecuadorian terroir can provide.
