About the Farm

Years ago, this rare genetic varietal was on the edge of extinction due to growing numbers of abandoned farms. Thanks to our interest and chocolate makers support, farmers saved these trees from being lost forever, and now over 90 families are actively growing this uniquely flavored bean

About our Partnership

We work with Original Beans and several local organizations to economically incentivize the growth of this scarce and vital varietal. By giving the community the resources necessary to reforest their cacao farms and improve the ecosystem, we can preserve this endangered cacao and promote cacao diversity in the long run.
