La Cuna del cacao
Our cocoa varieties from Panama
Panama's cocoa beans are grown in the Bocas del Toro region. This region is characterized by many tree gardens, dry places, shady banana plants and cocoa trees.
The province of Bocas del Toro in Panama is one of the so-called "Zonas indìgenas", Noge Bugle, which has been inhabited and cultivated by Indians for many years.
The plantations in Panama do not have a name, as they are assigned to settlements in the province of Bocas del Toro.
In this province all varieties and variations are present, hybrids of Trinitario with Forastero and a large part Criollo. The plantations have existed in the region for 60 years.
Drying takes place at so-called drying points, in wooden drawers or even on banana leaves. The fermentation process lasts at least three days.
