    About the Beans

    The San Juan “Chivite” community is based on a 180-hectare cacao farm. The farm’s original owner had abandoned its land during the Guatemalan civil war in the 1980’s. The 65 families who were workers of the farm at the time seized the farm in 1985. In 2002, the families converted an area of the farm that produced coffee over to cacao, and as the community has grown from 64 to 125 families today, cacao cultivation remains the source of over 90% of the community’s income.  (Uncommon Cacao)

    Tastings Notes

    An aromatic and bright dark chocolate bar, with deep, dark notes of stone fruit – think juicy purple plums – and festive spices akin to gingerbread.

      Really stunning, great bar of unknown (for me) origin. Is it from the Lago Atitlan region?
