La Cholita is the result of the constant work of three generations that, with great dedication and passion for chocolate, have created a history of tradition in Cusco. More than 50 years ago, Mr. Hugo Barberis dreamed of transforming raw materials from the Cusco region and providing added value. He began with the transformation of cocoa beans from the La Convención Valley – Cusco. This passion was instilled and shared with his son Gustavo, who for 30 years with his wife Junia, decided to continue the tradition of chocolate in the family, developing a new line of handmade chocolates from the grain to the bar: “bean to bar”. This is how they created new combinations of chocolate with products from Cusco so that the local, national and international public can enjoy the exquisite flavors of a traditional brand of chocolates from Cusco.
