La costa del chocolate
La costa del chocolate comes from a dream: a dream to regenerate the ecology, community and economy around cacao and chocolate in the Talamanca region. This Caribbean part of Costa Rica has historically been a major center of cacao production. Over the last 15 years there has been a renaissance in local high-quality cacao productions, small-scale farms and artisanal chocolate makers – spanning local indigenous, Afro-Caribbean, Costa Rican and ex-patriot communities.
La costa del chocolate is part of this renaissance bringing together these local and diverse cultural communities. By participating in this project, you are supporting the dream of this cacao community.
