On its 22 years of service focusing on ecotourism and agritourism, with icons such as Bird Park, Butterfly Sanctuary and Malagos Chocolates here in Davao City, the Puentespinas proudly offers us  a place where to learn and educate ourselves about chocolates, and experience fun making chocolate bar.

A novel attraction that aims to reinforce the company’s advocacy to support local premium, and put the Malagos brand in the chocolate map of the Philippines and in the world. It is said to be the first chocolate museum in the Philippines.

My boys and I were blessed to be among those who had the first glimpse through an exclusive tour on that day before the public opening. Grateful for Ms. Charisse Puentespina’s invite! 🙂

The Puentespina’s Malagos Chocolates from Davao City have become popular and has continued to gain recognition even abroad.

Our farm, Malagos, takes its name from malakas na agos, which means “strong flow of water”. It is located along the equator where cacao thrives best. Here, the soil, the sun, the climate – our environment – come together to create the unique terroir that gives our beans their identity, an individuality that cannot be replicated anywhere in the world.

Cacao beans sourced from our unique terroir and singular locale carry with them a more distinctive and pronounced taste. Chocolate connoisseurs know that exceptional chocolate is one that can trace its origins and can be produced consistently.
We are proud to say that ours is single-origin chocolate.
Our beans come from only our farms and its immediate environs,from small farmers who also care for their trees themselves. We teach them good agricultural practices so that we get the beans that give us good chocolate. We observe fair trade to make sure everyone benefits from what we believe are one of the best.
