Has always been our passion. This stems from our Ecuadorian roots and our love for cocoa from early childhood; some of the finest choice cocoa, after all, has always been produced in Ecuador.
Artisan production from the bean to the finished chocolate has always been the tradition in our Ecuadorian family – although it is rarely encountered here in Germany. Whenever we are visiting family in the cold Andean highlands of Ecuador, this is what we are really looking forward to:
As pure, plain drinking chocolate, deliciously aromatic, powerful but soft and velvety, with an outstanding flowery aroma. A genuinely natural taste sensation of superb quality.
We no longer want to live without it here in Germany: our family business imports the finest organic ARRIBA NACIONAL cocoa directly from the country of origin, traded fairly without any intermediaries. Thus, we not only protect the environment but also tantalize the taste buds of all chocolate lovers. Join us and discover the world of choice cocoa and its sensual aroma.

A genuine source
ARRIBA NACIONAL – one of the best cocoa qualities in the world, is produced exclusively in Ecuador. We are proud of our personal connection to our products. We are fully conversant with them, as our imports come from a small, highly familiar cooperative. We can therefore guarantee that our ARRIBA NACIONAL really is made of this variety. This gives chocolatiers the rare opportunity to produce not just a single-variety product, but a true ‘single-origin chocolate’.
Fairness and excellent quality are key priorities with us. This is why our cocoa butter and cocoa powder are produced locally in Ecuador, which makes it possible for us to guarantee that the cocoa farmers and their families receive a fair price for their products. A promising approach to ensure that small local farmers receive a much greater share of the value chain.
An extraordinarily delicious aroma
The fine fruity-floral aroma with its overtone of nuts, coffee, and vanilla makes for a truly palate-tickling experience with our ARRIBA NACIONAL. The exclusive interplay of aromas is truly inspiring and makes it possible for chocolatiers to create a chocolate with a character that customers develop a passion for.
Only the best cocoa beans make for top-quality products. Ensuring uniform quality is of paramount importance in this context. Our ARRIBA NACIONAL undergoes the most stringent quality inspections at all stages of harvesting, fermentation, drying, and storage. Each and every small local farmer in our cooperative is organically certified, as are our cocoa products. Our products
