Our Cacao Beans

Our single origin Qʼeqchiʼ Cacao Beans are grown deep in the rainforest in Guatemala from the Federation of Cooperatives of Coban, Alta and Baja Verapaz.

The Cacao Trees on these small-scale farms are incredibly special and have a long history of mixing naturally over several decades to produce a unique blend of Criollo and Trinitario material, otherwise know as “Acriollado.”

Natural, unique and most importantly, produced 100% by small-scale farmers from the indigenous people of Mayan Q´eqchi.

We are proud to work with one of Guatemala’s leading reforestation organisations, who have been leading by example since 1976, fulfilling their mission to provide a way for farmers to improve their living conditions while honouring and protecting their culture and ecosystem.

We pay a premium on these very special beans to ensure the sustainable cultivation of Cacao from jungle to cup.  Cacao plantations in an agroforestry system can help to counter global warming by planting more trees - this is what we are all about!

All processes and exports are carried out directly by Fedecovera, which guarantees 100% traceability.
