Zoque 88%, Selva Zoque, Mexico
Tropical aromas of lychee and coconut in this select tribal Tabasqueño cacao have lifted the spirits of local Zoque and Tzotzil tribes for 4000 years.
Overcoming centuries of oppression, the indigenous Zoque and Tzotzil tribes with whom we make this chocolate have stayed true to their spirited traditions in the Selva Zoque, the largest rainforest in Mexico. The ancient Zoque made their forest, or “selva”, the birthplace of all cacao when they gave it a name, “kakaw”, and a god, the cacao-eating spider monkey. Each sale of Zoque 88% helps revive these 4000 year-old traditions and the animals (such as the jaguar) they celebrate.
