Sueños Chocolate

‘Sueños’ (‘dreams’) is the name of Yamile Roldan’s farm in Puerto Quito, Ecuador. The dream realized at Finca Sueños, and by all of the farmers of the Asociación Nueva Esperanza organic cooperative, is to conserve through cultivation rare heirloom ‘Nacional’ cacao varieties that are native to Ecuador and have been grown and enjoyed there for thousands of years. Nacional varieties are low-yielding and comprise only ~5% of Ecuador’s current cacao crop (and even less globally), but are world-renowned for their exceptional aromas and flavors, and lack of bitterness.
