About the region: San Jose Del Tambo, at least 200 years old, is situated in the foothills of the Andes Mountains in the beautiful cloud forest. It is said that the Quechua Indians used this little village as a resting place before journeying further into the Andes. At Del Tambo, the hills rise sharply until the tops are obscured by low-hanging clouds. The Rio de San Miguela, a fast-flowing river, along with just the right climate provides the land for some of the best cocoa in the world. The storied Ecuador Arriba taste profile is found in these cocoa beans.
Caution: May contain pistachio shells
