A smooth flavor bouquet: the gold of Costa Rica

Cocoa has a special place in Costa Rica’s culture and history. We partner with around 80 farmers in the Caribbean lowlands. Their agricultural practices show how cocoa remains at the heart of Costa Rica.


Known mainly for their coffee in recent years, the fine flavor of Costa Rican Trinitario cocoa is once again their currency of choice. It perfectly reflects their rich culture and lush environment and makes every bite unforgettable.
