What would you say to delicious bean-to-bar chocolate made from gentle cacao grown on the lush yet historically impoverished Caribbean nation of Haiti, where cacao farmers are working to raise their families and communities out of poverty?

Fund the new Haitian Chocolate Project kickstarter campaign, launching Thursday, January 28, 2016, and you’re funding new fermentation boxes to make this good cacao better, and to further farmers’ abilities to lift their families and communities out of poverty by getting their cacao to the US market.

One thought on “Haiti is Here

  1. Love the idea, and how you are using a resource that has been around for a long time. I have a good friend from Haiti, and he is always talking about how they have so much good agriculture over there. He however never mentioned to me that they have cocoa beans. This seems like it will be a great project, and I am sure it will make an amazing product.
