Alto Beni Cacao - 


Alto Beni Cacao grew out of a partnership between Alex Whitmore, of Taza Chocolate, and Bolivian brothers Jorge and Nelson Valverde. It was formed as a way to help develop organic cacao farming in the La Paz region of Bolivia as well as a viable economic export. Today Alto Beni Cacao is committed to their community and has developed into a network of 500 small-holder farmers who are paid premium prices making cacao a sustainable crop in Bolivia.


The cacao beans are fermented in wooden boxes and sun dried to deliver a rich chocolaty flavor. Alto Beni Cacao grows in its natural habitat along the Alto Beni River where it is referred to as Wild Bolivia.
