At the intersection of the Caribbean Sea and the Magdalena River, which enters the plain and crosses the mountain ranges, lies the municipality of Aracataca, birthplace of the great Gabriel García Márquez and this chocolate.
The picturesque community, with its colonial buildings and tiny bridges, conveys the spirit of magical realism.
We walk through the lush countryside and into the community of Aracataca. This is where the Macondo Cacao School can be found. It was founded to help farmers preserve an ancient tradition and strengthen local production.
Here you will find notes of red berries, citrus fruits and brown sugar.
