Only Now: Is at this precise instant, when the bean is separated from the placenta, when the sweetness in the flavor profile is irreversible determined. Not too late, so you do not get vinegary off flavors. Not too soon, so the astringency does not overthrows it all.

We often wonder, what makes a great cacao bean?

We often wonder, what makes a great cacao bean? Could it be the mix of the compost, the amount of rain, the hours of sunlight transforming into sugars, the days and nights spent in the fermentation box? We research for answers and fall into a labyrinth of agronomical studies and its complex theories. Now we have many answers, but in essence we have none. So, we go to the cacao field and suddenly it strikes us. We knew it all along: It’s LOVE that makes a great cacao bean; deep caring and good intentions in every step of the process. LOVE: It’s the answer we were looking for.”

Nature Knows Best: Cacao flowers sprout by millions but only a few tens of them give fruition. Uncountable variables must meet at the proper time for a flower to become a fruit: temperature rates, humidity, atmospheric pressure, the pollinators mood and many others.

And yet, we get a plenty harvest of cacao fruits, year after year. Many things in life are like this, only humble patience and thankfulness could come from our part and Nature will provide all we need to fulfill our purpose.
