We start with sustainability, passion, and performance. You can taste the hard work required for such quality chocolate in every bite. Our chocolate is made from the finest Arriba Nacional cacao bean provinces in Ecuador – Manabí, Los Ríos, Esmerladas, and Pichincha. From Virgin (minimally processed) to Light, Medium, and Dark Roast beans, we take extra care in everything we do, ensuring each and every chocolate you taste is exceptional.
We develop flavor profiles suited to the soils of each of our single-province chocolates that will empower your creations and help you distinguish your confections in a crowded marketplace.
We offer a beautiful blend of tradition and creation – from our crowd pleasing 64% Roasted, to our award winning 100% Virgin, to our 70% Roasted with Wasabi & Nibs (that’s right, we said Wasabi).
Nibs and powder and butter, oh my!
A TASTE OF ETHICAL FARMING
Since the 1800’s, Ecuadorian farmers on the Coast and in the Amazon have taken our cocoa beans – a “Nacional” treasure – and created magic. Arriba Nacional has run into trouble more than once in the last century. We are engaging directly with hard working farmers to preserve the unique varietal of cacao – and our Ecuadorian heritage along with it!
