Our Cacao Love Story
Ecuador holds a special place in our hearts. It’s a mysterious country. The size of Colorado. It has everything. Rich coasts. Towering volcanos. Exotic islands. Seductive rainforests. It was in Ecuador that we fell in love. My wife, Claudia, actually grew up in neighboring Colombia. A few years ago, a coffee grower and neighbor to one of her relatives entered his coffee beans into the national coffee competition and won ‘Best Tasting Coffee in Colombia’. Best of the best. That’s why I found it strange when Claudia explained to me that when she was growing up she turned to cacao for her early morning pick-me-up. Not coffee. Cacao.
