The Chachis people are an ethnic group who live in the rainforest area of northwestern Esmeraldas on the northern coast of Ecuador. They live by the Cayapas River in the Centro El Encanto, bordering the Cotacachi Cayapas Ecological Reserve. To reach this community you must take a boat in Puerto Borbor (Esmeraldas) and travel for approximately 2.5 hours. Cayapas river cacao is a blend from 300 smallholder farmers, many of whom are part of the Chachis tribe.
