From unexplored plantations where the authentic and original flavours of the “Xocoatl” have been maintained, Agostoni has uncovered the oldest and most sought-after Criollo cocoa beans, a precious fruit now only grown in small parts of the world. The ancient Criollo Bagua Nativo cocoa in the Peruvian regions of Amazonas is a product of the tropical climate and diversified cultivation. It was harvested as early as 3000 BC when it grew wild. Agostoni has located the plantations who have succeeded to preserve the authentic and original flavours of the primitive cocoa which is still grown by the Mayo Chincipe community. In the central northern region of Peru, where the Andes taper off into the Amazon forest, Agostoni has discovered a special place, the San Martin region. Here it has selected the Cru Pachiza, an exclusive cocoa variety with a wide range of aromas.
