República del Cacao1
Why locals love it
This is one of the finest chocolate brands of Ecuador. In 2005, the Ecuadorian founders visited a chocolate boutique Paris, asking to taste the best chocolate in the world. To their surprise, they were told it came from Ecuador. This moment was the beginning of a very successful company that produces high quality chocolate bars and other products.
Why you should visit it
Ecuador has been known for cocoa seed exports, but not for chocolate. This is the main reason why it is important to support this growing industry. The finest and aromatic cocoa comes from Latin America and Ecuador is the responsible of the 65% of world production of this variety of cocoa.
