The Q’eqchi Maya farmers of Chivite, Guatemala harvest cacao from the wild trees surrounding their village. When Goodnow first visited the village, they were immediately drawn to love their cacao, but the fermentation and drying facility badly needed an upgrade. Working with the farmers and with Cacao Verapaz, Goodnow funded the materials necessary for village to build a brand new fermentation and drying area. They’re now able to provide incredibly high quality cacao on a consistent basis. This bar has delightfully bright fruit flavors of green banana and mango.
