Overcoming centuries of oppression, the indigenous Zoque and Tzotzil tribes with whom we make this chocolate have stayed true to their spirited traditions in the Selva Zoque, the largest rainforest in Mexico. The ancient Zoque made their forest, or “selva”, the birthplace of all cacao when they gave it a name, “kakaw”, and a god, the cacao-eating spider monkey. Each sale of Zoque 88% helps revive these 4000-year-old traditions and the animals (such as the jaguar) they celebrate. A perfect high-end gift for any dark chocolate lover.
