The generic name of “Theobroma” is derived from the Greek for "food of the gods"; from θεός (theos), meaning 'god', and βρῶμα (broma), meaning 'food'.
Cacao pods are grown on the Theobroma cacao tree. The pods are removed from the tree and within the pods contain cacao beans which are covered in a sticky white texture. These beans are then fermented and then ready to be processed.
Cacao originating from Peru is sought after for its unique taste profile characteristics and in conjunction to its scarcity when compared to other producing areas in the world.
As of 2019, over 75% of cocoa produced worldwide comes from West Africa, specifically Côte D'Ivoire, Ghana, Cameroon and Nigeria.
South America produces around 15% of the world’s cacao production.
Peru only produces around 2.5% of the world’s cacao.
