Single Origin Chocolate: Costa Rica

Cocoa in Costa Rica had a humble beginning, in that the “food of the gods” was considered sacred by the indigenous people of the area, and also used as currency. Costa Rica’s largest export is currently bananas and coffee, although prior to these two, cocoa was the leading export in the country. There are still multiple thriving plantations across multiple provinces, although not producing on a mass-scale, so you are likely to find Costa Rican cocoa in craft, single-origin chocolate.

Costa Rica

Costa Rica is nestled in Central America in between Nicaragua & Panama, producing excellent cocoa particularly utilized in single-origin craft chocolate. Costa Rica is not producing cocoa at the same rate/level of the Ivory Coast and mass-producing countries, resulting in sought-out-for cacao. The Costa Rican blends available are a testament to the cocoa’s quality, with three luxury options currently available.
