Hacienda Victoria stands on lands considered sacred, where the cocoa culture has been a tradition for more than two thousand years thanks to particularly favourable climatic conditions that alternate periods of rain with periods of drought.
Here, thanks to the vision of Andres Guzman and Charlie Garcia, it was possible to build a modern and avant-garde plantation with the aim of protecting Arriba National cocoa, whose cultivation in purity is now extinct.
Hacienda Victoria also actively contributes to the development of the local community, building schools and paying for teaching materials to increase the level of education.
The cacao grown here is the Arriba Nacional variety, grown in purity, free from contamination with CCN51. In tasting it offers an extraordinary roundness and aromatic notes of white flowers, dried fruit and spices, making it one of the most popular cocoas in the world.
