Goodnow Farms Guatemala "Asochivite" 77% Dark Chocolate
During their trip to the Alta Varapaz region of Guatemala, Tom and Monica found this surprisingly bright bean, which is grown and harvested by Q'eqchi Maya farmers.

There are now 125 families living in San Juan Chivite, all of whom are descendants of the original 64 families.
These families are now collaborating with Cacao Verapaz that together with funding by Goodnow Farm has helped them improving their fermentation and drying techniques.
