Our remote farm is near a national park and river in a small village.
Our cacao farm offers the only bean to bar chocolate tour using household appliances.
Since 2012 we are showing guests how to make their own chocolate using our organic cacao nibs. Guests learn all about the health benefits, the history of cacao and how its's grown. After the tour you will be given fresh made chocolate to create your own chocolate candies. On our farm we have, depending on the season, 5 to 10 local workers cleaning and trimming the trees and harvesting our organic cacao. After the cacao gets harvested the beans get fermented and dried before using them for our chocolate products. We have one part time local girl working in the cacao kitchen and helping our volunteer.
You find the farm located next to hotel facility with restaurant and bar which our guests and volunteers are welcome to use.
