Cacao Direct

We stumbled onto our project for making world-class cacao in the most remote rainforest in Central America in absolute ignorance and perfect confidence. From that inauspicious start, and with the stalwart support of wonderful bean to bar chocolate makers, we have changed the lives of two hundred producer families in twelve villages along the Patuca river in the Rio Platano Biosphere Reserve, and halted the cattle-ranching deforestation that sped downriver.
