Castronovo Belize Maya Mountain Dark Chocolate 70%
Along the foothills of the Maya Mountains in southern Belize, indigenous Mayans were the first to commercialize cacao and the tradition continues today. In the most ambitious cocoa cooperative project ever, Maya Mountain Cacao demonstrates that cultivating cacao within diversified agroforestry farms provides a sustainable alternative to slash-and-burn agriculture. The cooperative has raised family incomes and enables greater school enrollment.
This chocolate bar made from their heirloom cocoa beans has a bright tropical fruit flavor and a mild nuttiness.
