A rare cocoa variety from Guatemala with a high percentage of Criollo. Criollo, the native, is the oldest and the finest and most sublime cocoa in the world. In Guatemala, a very unique and independent cocoa variety combining the fine flavour Criollo and Trinitario beans has emerged in the region over the past centuries. The indigenous cocoa farmers of the FEDECOVERA cooperative in Guatemala have produced this blend in order to protect the Mayan legacy and cultivate this extremely rare, regional fine cocoa. All participating farmers belong to indigenous tribes with their own language and culture and live in the Cahabon and Polochic regions of the country. As small farmers, they cultivate this Criollo descendant as a mixed crop, which is essential for a stable ecological balance. The FEDECOVERA cooperative also invests in education, supporting elementary schools and teachers and encouraging their members to study and use their knowledge to benefit the community.
