The beans for this bar come from Maya Mountain Cacao, Ltd., a social enterprise in southern Belize. Maya Mountain Cacao buys wet (i.e. freshly harvested, unfermented) cacao beans from a few hundred indigenous Maya smallholder cocoa producers, and gathers them into a centralized fermentary in Punta Gorda. By fermenting and drying all the beans in one place, Maya Mountain Cacao can carefully control the quality and consistency of the beans, fetching a high price that in turn empowers Maya Mountain Cacao to pay the farmers a higher price for their beans.
