This chocolate is made with native and wild cocoa originating on the banks of the Cassiporé River, which is located in the Cape Orange National Park, almost on the border with French Guiana, in Amapá. A small stretch of the Amazon Forest separates it from the Atlantic Ocean. In this place, they find many cacao trees and there are reports of Jesuit settlements in the area from the end of the 16th century. Cocoa was a way to get income to support themselves. By that time, Europe was already consuming cocoa as a beverage, and cocoa butter was used as an ointment on wounds. The genetic analysis of some seeds of this cacao reveals that they belong to the Amelonados family, but they are the most genetically homogeneous that they have ever seen! A big surprise for them: Could the Cassiporé River valley be the birthplace of the Amelonados family? The Cacau do Cassiporé Cooperative is benefiting from this very special cocoa.
