An ancient passion for chocolate
Cocoa is a favored ingredient of Latin America, where it has always been part of the gastronomy thanks to the Mayans and Aztecs. For Colombia, the turning point really occurred in the 17th century with the well-known passion for the cocoa drink. Cacao tree plantations were then spread over the whole country. Colombians, moreover, are the biggest consumers of chocolate in Latin America, which explains the important presence of local chocolate factories and the family tradition of chocolate “at home”. However, consumption per capita remains limited, especially compared with European countries.
Colombia, a cocoa producer country
Colombia produces about 2% of cacao beans on the international market. However, the local specialty, the Colombian Criollo, considered the most valuable variety in the world, constitutes 5% of the worldwide harvest. It should be noted that Criollo has a purity of over 90%! The low tannin content of these beans gives them a slightly bitter flavor. In Colombia, unlike other producer countries, the pod is green, elongated and pointed. If you have the opportunity to taste this high-quality chocolate, you'll immediately know what finesse is all about.
The significance of cocoa in the Colombian economy
Cocoa has helped Colombia to attain its status as the fourth economic power of South America. The favorable climate makes it possible to develop an excellent agriculture based on a variety of products, including rice, coffee, cotton and cane sugar. In any case, if you're ever in Colombia, you know what type of gift to offer your hosts, neighbors or office colleagues.
