Deep in the foothills of northern Guatemala lies the village of Rocjá Pomtilá, a settlement of Maya Q’eqchi’ who cultivate cacao, cardamom, and maize. Their cacao has only recently become commercially available, thanks to the efforts of a truly extraordinary organization, Uncommon Cacao. The audacious proposition of Uncommon Cacao is that with education, organization and fair treatment, the cacao farmers can substantially improve their livelihoods. Their mission is to create a sustainable, prosperous cacao industry in which farmers and chocolate makers thrive together.
