PHILIPPINES - Davao

Back to overview

In Davao, South-East of Mindanao, favourable climatic conditions allow cacao to florish. We present 5 distinct quality-profiles, with carefull controlled genetics and post-harvest practices. You can find flowery, woodish, greenish and fruity notes. A must-have for quality lovers.

Davao region is the "cacao capital" of the Phillippines, though mostly known for bulk-cacao. It is only since 2015, when Kelly Go and Marc O'campo drafted their plan revive the cacao culture in their country, that farmers had access to proper harvest and post-harvest training and heriloom varieites were protected.

Cacao Growing

Cacao grows in agroforestry or intercropped with coconut trees. This is a major step forward from monoculture plantation and also creates a protective buffer for remaining forest fragments.
