Nahua - Dark chocolate 70% with peppermint oil - COSTA RICA - 50g

Gluten Free
Pod
Trinitario
Bean-to-Bar

​Connoisseurs will love Nahua's 70% cacao dark chocolate with mint. Nahua's bars are simple in appearance but offer a fresh, rich and satisfying creamy texture while preserving the deep, intense bouquet of flavors of the fine cocoa from which they are made.

All Nahua chocolate contains fine cacao nib particles, which their equipment cannot handle. Rather than using time and resources to filter them out, the Nahua chocolate makers decided to keep them, thus making their artisanal chocolate even more interesting.

Cocoa farmer and chocolate maker

Eva Fernandez Ruiz´s Cacao Farm

Eva Fernandez Ruiz, also known as Doña Eva, is a smallholder cacao producer operating in Northern Costa Rica. She is one of several farmers that supply Nahua.

When Eva was a child, her father worked on one of the larger farms in the region. For his years of hard work and loyal service, her father was given a small plot of land on which he planted a cacao forest, hoping to establish a consistent source of income for his family. However, when disease struck cacao plantations throughout Costa Rica in the 1970s and 1980s, Eva’s father abandoned the plantation.

Eva inherited the plantation, which had become overgrown and unproductive. Any harvest available, Eva sold in the local market. Over the years, Eva became unable to keep up with the demands of managing her 7 hectare plantation. Nahua agronomists visited Eva and recognized that her cacao farm was not maximizing its productivity potential. Now Eva’s plantation is undergoing an improvement/renovation process which will allow her, in two years, to benefit from improved productivity and a meaningful increase in household income.

Working directly with local farming communities, Nahua’s Cacao Renovation Program helps improve the lives of smallholder farmers by providing valuable technical training and access to financing. The program also focuses on preserving the environment by promoting sustainable farming practices, reforestation, and the conservation of natural ecosystems. Nahua seeks to make a positive impact, one cacao bean at a time!...
