The Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta territory holds sacred significance as it is home to four indigenous peoples who are descendants of the ancient Tayronas: Arhuacos, Koguis, Wiwas, and Kankuamos. These communities, considered brother towns, have safeguarded, preserved, and protected the region’s natural resources for thousands of years. They also express gratitude to mother earth for maintaining balance by offering tributes or spiritual payments in specific locations within the mountainous massif, among which includes cocoa crops.
Reflecting on this aboriginal task so little known in the Western world, we understood that through cocoa and chocolate we could transmit this important message from the “Heart of the World” to a more aware and responsible food society and that we could also contribute by improving part of the quality of life of small producers by making direct purchases at a fair price for special high-quality lots in each harvest and that in this purpose it was also possible to include peasant farmers who, like indigenous people, develop friendly organic and agroecological production practices with the environment and that at some point in their lives they left illicit crops to dedicate themselves to cocoa as a means of livelihood.
Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta
It is for this reason that our products focus on the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta origin, in addition to the fact that we can mention other notable characteristics, such as being the highest intertropical coastal mountain in Colombia and on the planet and the fifth highest summit in the world. The Sierra Nevada is declared by UNESCO as a Biosphere and Man Reserve and in its vicinity is located the National Natural Park that bears the same name and adjacent to it the Tayrona National Natural Park.
