About Ingemann Fine Cocoa
Recognized as leaders in genetics, post-harvest methodology and quality, Ingemann is a fine cocoa producer and exporter from Nicaragua.
Through constant innovation they have developed post-harvest protocols that allow the creation of unique cocoa flavor profiles for the most demanding and creative chocolate makers in the world. Hand in hand with innovation, Ingemann works on real sustainability programs and practices applied in every step of the production process because that is the only way for a healthy and long term relationship with the producers, customers and the environment.
Ingemann collection at farm gate and processing
Due to the small size and vast number of producers, Ingemann makes bi-weekly trips to the plantations to collect the cocoa in wet-mass at each farm gate. This way the producer doesn’t have to deal with the risk and the cost of post-harvest, and can focus on the efficient management of their plantation.
Collection at farm gate also enables Ingemann to control fermentation from the very beginning, hence controlling the flavor development of the beans. The wet-mass is processed in a centralized facility where the post-harvest (fermentation + drying & sorting + quality control) can be entirely controlled to ensure quality and consistency over time.
