72% Haiti, Acul du Nord

The farms in Haiti have a perfect climate and terrain for the production of cacao and shares the island of Hispaniola with the Dominican Republic, which is well known for extensive organic cacao cultivation. The island has faced significant deforestation in recent decades, and the Haitian practice of growing cacao in biodiverse “Creole gardens” offers a critical opportunity to support reforestation and preservation. Cacao in Haiti is often intercropped with coconut, plantain, mango, palms, root crops, and a wide variety of other plants. This cacao from Haiti is considered Ultra-Premium.
