thrilled to have this rather unique cacao in our range and Matale Coop-id was
the first coop we started to work with.
a microcredit initiative in 2009 Coop-id have grown to include 200 farmers. It
has become one of the leading providers of the unique Ceylon aromatic cacao
which can only be found in small quantities. The farms are located in central
Sri Lanka in the area of Matale. Farming products include cocoa and spices. Everything
grows in a mix creating a favourable ecosystem.
The cacao is first box fermented for 6 days, typically turned 3 times and dried on raised dry beds and with the help of wood fired ovens.
We have been working with Coop-id since 2013
