Sí, de Correa. Inicialmente la fabrica era entre los Correa y Chiriboga de la Confiteca (Republica del Cacao), se separaron hace algunos años.

Do visit: http://www.runaphotos.com - extremely impressive work!!

Awesome imagery from Ecuador-based photojournalists Ivan Kashinsky and Karla Gachet who visited The Wall Street Journal last week to show their work–including a new app they developed for the iPad called “Short Stories: From Ecuador to Tierra Del Fuego”—the result of visiting five South American countries in seven months in their trusty jeep, Sancho, named for Don Quixote’s Sancho Panza.

Mr. Kashinsky and Ms. Gachet met at the newspaper at San Jose State University in California, eventually married and headed for the equator. Ms. Gachet became the first woman photographer at El Comercio, a major newspaper in Ecuador, and both have received multiple awards for their work.

I just wrote this post on some of the exotic flavors we have in Ecuador, and how they can be paired with chocolate!
Exotic Ecuadorian Chocolate Flavors find a new match with Ishiping, a close relative of cinnamon and also known as American Cinnamon
