Since 2011, our team has worked with cacao farmers from the north tropical region of Costa Rica to produce a premium quality cacao. Nahua recognized the opportunity to have a positive impact on the lives of smallholder cacao farmers and implemented programs to support sustainable farming practices, helping increase cacao tree productivity and farmer income. Historically, one of the more underserved segments of society, rural smallholder farmers are now working to revitalize their cacao forests.
Nahua Chocolates are produced in Costa Rica by a highly qualified team of Costa Ricans and Latin Americans who have embraced Nahua’s passion for producing gourmet premium chocolate while supporting social development and the environment.
Nahua’s post-harvest management follows strict quality standards and includes a meticulous “triple revolution” fermentation process along with solar drying techniques. Our chocolatiers work with the highest quality ingredients and with our premium dried cacao beans to create a rich variety of flavors and delightful gourmet chocolate bars and cacao products.
We also work closely with farmers to promote sustainable farming practices, reforestation efforts and the conservation of ecological corridors and natural ecosystems.
