Cacao Origin

Öko-Caribe, El Cibao Region, Duarte Province, Dominican Republic

Öko Caribe is a certified organic fermentary founded in 2006 by Gualberto Torrejon and Adriano Rodriguez, two cacao professionals with extensive experience in cacao production throughout Latin America. Since its inception, Öko Caribe has been purchasing wet beans from smallholder farmers and fermenting and drying them at their centralized processing location in the Duarte Province of the Dominican Republic. Öko Caribe currently works with 165 farmers who are formed into regional base organizations which receive training and funding.

All pods are pre-selected prior to opening as a part of Öko Caribe’s quality protocol. Öko Caribe ensures that all of the wet beans it purchases arrive to the fermentation center in less than 6 hours. They are all fermented in a cascading 4-box tier system. Fermentation lasts for 5-6 days, and can be tailored to customer's specifcations. Given the humid, tropical climate with frequent rains, Öko Caribe uses solar tunnel drying houses to dry their beans to 7% moisture.
