Hispaniola is an exceptional variety of cacao grown in the Dominican Republic – only 4% of the cacao from the country is from this variety. This is because these much-coveted beans require tremendous skill to process.The CONACADO co-operative who grow them for Equal Exchange certainly have what it takes. This organic, Fairtrade cocoa is one of the most velvety, rich you’ll ever taste.As well as making a fine cup of cocoa, amazing mousses and cakes, this cocoa has a wonderful story.
Most cocoa farmers are self-supporters and cultivate cocoa as the only cash crop. In the past, many farmers lost their crop to insect plagues or from the lack or agricultural know-how. Others has to dump their raw cocoa beans for ridiculously low prices, or could not sell it at all. More than 30 years ago Equal Exchange thought their might be a better way to trade. An equal exchange.
