  • Description


    Hi! We´re Luz, Oliver, and little Liam from Lima-Peru.

    We moved from the capital city to the upper Amazon, 3 years ago, to start our cacao project and dream: from cocoa farm to chocolate.
    We live in Chazuta, a little friendly town located one hour from Tarapoto, surrounded from the national park Cordillera Azul and regional park Cerro Escalera, and touched by the Huallaga river. We have planted cocoa trees in our land, with an agroforestry concept, we are interested in fair trade, and develop other social activities and agrotourism. We are focus on high quality cocoa beans, and strict and standard process , to get to the best chocalate. Our world now is cocoa and chocolate in the middle of beautiful nature.

    Hola! Somos Oliver y Luz, y nuestro pequeño Liam de Lima-Perú. Nos mudamos de la capital de Perú a vivir en la selva alta del Amazonas, hace 2 años, para comenzar nuestro proyecto y sueños de cacao: del sembrio de cacao al chocolate.
    Vivimos en Chazuta, un pequeño pueblo situado a 1 hora de Tarapoto, rodeado del Parque Nacional cordillera y el Parque Regional Cerro Escalera a orillas del río Huallaga. Hemos plantado árboles de cacao en nuestra tierra, con un concepto de agroforestaría, estamos interesados en el comercio justo, y desarrollar otras actividades sociales y agroturismo. Estamos enfocados en los granos de cacao de alta calidad, y un proceso estricto y estándares, para llegar a la mejor chocolate. Nuestro mundo es el cacao y el chocolate en el medio de la naturaleza.
