San Jose Del Tambo, Ecuador
A quiet, unassuming village at the foothills of the Andes Mountains holds one of cocoa’s best-kept secrets. Once an outpost for journeying Quechua Indians looking for rest before ascending the Andes, San Jose Del Tambo, Ecuador, has made its mark in South America as one of the best regions in which to grow cocoa. Cocoa only grows 20 degrees north or south of the Equator because it prefers hot and humid climates. Fittingly, San Jose Del Tambo’s balmy weather and high altitude, coupled with the roaring waters of the Rio de San Miguela creates one of the world’s best environments for growing superb cocoa beans.
