Cacao production in America has existed for many centuries, even before the Spaniards’ arrival. Beginning in the late eighteenth century, cacao became a strategic commodity in Ecuadorian life. In 1779, the country went through its first major cacao boom, which carried on until around 1842. Some authors even state that cacao was the economic driver that helped finance two great moments in national history: Independence and the Liberal Revolution.
Until the late nineteenth century, fertile soil conditions and temperatures, as well as the adequate rainfall on the Ecuadorian coast, made for an ideal setting for producing the finest cacao in the world with excellent levels of productivity: this was known as National Cacao.
