Arriba Gold is a company dedicated to producing and delivering the highest quality gourmet dark cacao products worldwide. Founded by Ecuador-native-turned New Yorker, Andre Mendoza, in 2008, we strive to produce a sustainable product that comes from a pure source, remains minimally processed, and contains few additives, to give you the most delectable and sublime culinary chocolate experience this side of Ecuador. We think gourmet chocolate and cocoa products should be as pure as nature intended it to be, and to that end we focus greatly on the source: the Arriba cocoa bean, indigenous and exclusive to Ecuador and complex in flavor and aroma.
