Located in the northern Zoque region, in Chiapas, Tecpatán is a place whose language and culture are threatened with disappearance. Nowadays the only inhabitants left in the area are women and children, since most of the men migrated to North America in search of a better future.

For this chocolate, we source a Single-estate, Lavado (unfermented, washed) cacao from Doña Elvira Gómez, a third-generation cacao grower whose strength and perseverance have resulted in better and bigger harvests year after year. Hidden in the mountains of Tecpatán, about 1,200 meters above sea level, her 100-year old cacao trees coexist with pataxte (Theobroma bicolor), tangerine trees and banana plants.

Tasting Notes: High-altitude, lavado (unfermented washed) cacao. Tastes of spices like nutmeg and clove. Light roasted nuts and cacao aroma. Medium body and thin mouthfeel.
