Collection: Mashpi Chocolate!

In Italy a "gastronomia" is a place where you can by specialty items. We are so excited to start our gastronomia offerings by sharing some of the wonderful items our friends are producing. Any company we feature here follows beyond organic regenerative practices as well as producing something that we feel is very unique and special!

We are so excited to be offering organic chocolate bars made by our friends at Mashpi Chocolate. Made from the best chocolate in the world- the Cacao Nacional! With the main goal behind their project being conservation these chocolate bars not only help protect and regenerate the Choco forest but also the village of Mashpi. There is less than 2% of the Choco forest left and Mashpi Chocolate make sure that every aspect of their project helps support and revive this wonderful area!

The national cacao is a bio-cultural heritage, unique to Ecuador. However, it is being replaced by lower quality agro-industrial cacao. Mashpi's food forests are focused on rescuing ancient national cocoa varieties, safeguarding the diversity of flavors and aromas that have made this cacao world famous, creating good, clean and fair products.

We had the pleasure to visit their chocolate project in 2019 and it blew us away. Their chocolate is very delicate and floral. We are excited to offer 6 of our favorite farm to table chocolate bars.

All the ingredients in Mashpi chocolate come from the farm or from nearby farms, where they are grown together with the cocoa trees in a diverse production system. Mashpi uses unconventional and high value fruits, spices and seeds
nutritional value such as guava, bacao, calamondin, cocoa pulp and more! Try one of these super special bars today!

Go beyond fair trade chocolate and taste the beauty of the Choco forest!
