About.

Cata Chocolate grows and sources it’s cacao in the fertile Bijagua valley, shaded by the Miravalles and Tenorio volcanoes. We hand-harvest, ferment and sun-dry our Cacao beans with meticulous care and attention. Our beans are a hybrid of the Trinitario and Criollo varieties, and are considered as some of the highest quality fine flavor beans available. We Roast and refine our beans in small batches in our Playas del Coco facility, taking care to develop the natural flavor and aroma that is unique to our Chocolate. As a tree to bar maker of fine chocolate, we practice both sustainable agriculture practices on our farm and fair trade practices with our neighbors. In our Chocolate, we use only the highest quality, all natural products. Enjoy.

Cata Chocolate is an active ecological farm, allowing our guests to experience the nature and culture of rural Costa Rica. Our cabins offer farm, forest and mountain views. We have trails for nature viewing, birdwatching and offer farms tours.

The project promotes organic farming, sustainable agriculture and responsible consumer habits.
