rural Ecuador. Our fair

make our fair
trade cream liqueurs so smooth and creamy, our organic sugarcane
alcohol is blended with thick dairy cream
and organic cane sugar. In the past, we used certified
cream which we imported as none was available in Ecuador.
However, the Ecuadorian government has now banned the import
milk products, so we are working with a group of Ecuadorian dairy
farmers to gain organic certification for their home-produced cream.
Once the dairy cream is certified organic, our fair trade
liqueurs will once again have organic certification. The
traditionally-made organic cane sugar is either from the farmers of
CADO or from neighboring Colombia.
chocolate cream liqueur is flavored with the best organic cacao
(chocolate) beans, produced by a group of farmers fighting to maintain
their ancient cacao plantations in Ecuador's costa region.
These old trees produce less cacao than newer varieties, but
better quality - the famous Ecuadorian fine cacao de aroma.
group have organic certification for their cacao, and we are proud to
support their struggle to conserve the traditional plantations.
You can support them too, by buying our fair
trade chocolate cream liqueur.
fair trade coffee cream liqueur gets its taste from the
beans, shade-grown at high altitude and certified organic. We
buy from a unique group of coffee farmers consisting of two growers'
associations, where older farmers share their traditional knowledge of
coffee cultivation with younger members who bring their education and
business knowledge to the enterprise. We believe in
supporting such small Ecuadorian producer groups who are actively
conserving the environment. The farmers carefully select the
mature fruits for hand harvesting, before sun-drying them and roasting
them to bring out their rich coffee flavor. We then macerate
these top quality coffee beans in our organic, fair trade alcohol, to
extract all the subtle nuances of flavor which make our fair
trade coffee cream liqueur

distributor in Milan, Italy, will receive its first shipment very soon,

We are open to suggestions and special requests, for example
we can change our cream liqueur recipes to adjust the percentages of
sugar or alcohol to suit local markets. If you'd like a vegan
version, with soy cream rather than dairy, or have ideas for a new
flavor, please contact us. For
