Junin is Elfi’s home region so trips to Coop.Pangoa are synonymous with family visits for our chocolate makers. To ensure its sustainability, the cooperative also houses a leadership school for farmers and the next generation of farmers. Its activities are aimed not only at cultivating cocoa, but also coffee. Upon arriving at Pangoa, the co-op’s presence can be seen everywhere. It owns the hotel and the coffee shop where one can interact with the next generation of farmers who are seeking to expand their knowledge of coffee and chocolate.
