The first designated HCP heirloom cacao. This truely wild cacao is harvested form the area in the Tranquilidad Forest Estste which is owned and managed by none other then Volker Lehmann. The develpoment and production of the 2 separate Bolivian origins in Tranquilidad go directly to support his efforts in his project, Theobroma Cacao Foundation. The TFP is building on former achievements and expanding to researching and conserving Beniano wild cacao stands for future generations in Bolivia.
