Chocolate with intention
We locate farmers in Colombia, Peru, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and other countries to establish long term relationships of trust and mutual support. Then we purchase their fine flavor cacao beans. They make a sustainable living and you get to eat high quality and flavorful chocolate.
We support women owned farms and the training of our farmers. Our loyalty is returned through the amazing cacao beans they grow. Tabal is a reliable market for the farmers enabling them to to invest in more cacao trees (which by the way improves the world ecosystem).
You get single origin and single estate chocolate, not blended chocolate with soy lecithin. Like a fine wine or coffee from small farms, our chocolate is made with heirloom quality cacao that speaks to the uniqueness of the soil, climate, and skill of the cacao farmers.
We want to be different, socially just, and fair to the cacao farmers. We support Direct Trade and Fair Trade principles. We insure the quality of our chocolate by monitoring and testing from farmer to chocolate bar. Tabal means “relationship” in the Mayan language.
