We started out as a purely organic company from the very beginning. This is because we care about the impact of our actions at all levels that we have on the environment. We also contribute to the social stability of Costa Rica by ensuring that the workers come from the region, that they are paid fair wages, and that social security payments are up to date.
In addition, we encourage farmers from the region to also farm organically. Therefore we offer courses and tours to help them understand better what it means to be an organic farm. Finally, we work together with the school from the village near our farm so that the children can learn more about cocoa and the production of chocolate. This is an agricultural and historical heritage to preserve!
We started as a very small family business.
A couple of years ago, Bruno started experimenting with recipes to finally create the perfect chocolate, right in our kitchen, and probably at around 2 a.m. With the support of his family, he slowly began to sell his chocolate after hours of packing each chocolate bar in his own home and making thousands of trips in his truck to bring the cocoa from our farm.
We have now evolved into the company that we are now, our packaging, staff, and many other things might have changed.
But our love and dedication haven’t!
From our family to yours, we bring you the best chocolate in Costa Rica.
