Meet the Farmer
Walter + his wife Delfina work together to grow the cocao in the Amazon along the Palcazu river. Mike, the founder of Choco Sombra, discovered Walter while searching for cacao on one of his adventures in Peru. Serendipitously, as he was seeking emergency shelter in the Icoscasin area, the locals directed him to the respected cacao grower that was known for taking in travelers. At that moment a great friendship formed. Mike went on to assist Walter in obtaining his certifications to export directly to the USA.
