French Broad 73% Guatemala Chocolate Bar
French Broad 73% Guatemala Bar
Deep in the foothills of northern Guatemala lies the village of Rocjá Pomtilá, a settlement of Maya Q’eqchi’ who cultivate cacao, cardamom, and maize. Their cacao has only recently become commercially available, thanks to the
efforts of a truly extraordinary organization, Uncommon Cacao.
First in Belize with the famed Maya Mountain Cacao, then as Cacao Verapaz in Guatemala, the audacious proposition of Uncommon Cacao is that with education, organization and fair treatment, the cacao farmers could substantially improve their livelihoods. Their mission is to create a sustainable, prosperous cacao industry in which farmers, chocolate makers, and the environment thrive together.
We present our first production run of 73% cacao Guatemalan chocolate. With just two ingredients - this expertly fermented seed and organic sugar - this bar has rapidly ascended in our chocolate makers’ esteem, offering flavors of concord grape, chocolate
wafer cookie, and peanut butter.
