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. 

Chocolate Alchemy is coordinating and handling  USA orders a pallet and under for Cacao Latitudes.

We can also provide beans roasted, whole or as nibs.  Please Contact Us if you do not see the amount you need listed.
