    What to Expect
    CariBeans believes in a "local economy" model of doing business. This means that our products will include only ingredients produced in Costa Rica. We are not "certified" fair trade but rather our practices based on friendships we have developed within this small beach community and throughout Costa Rica.

    Caribeans is working with several indigenous groups and small family farmers to create a network of high quality sustainable producers in Costa Rica. The Chocolate Forest Experience!

    Cacao has deep roots in the history of the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. Now for the first time, gourmet bean-to-bar chocolate is being made right here in Puerto Viejo, Limon, Costa Rica. Our project is a sustainable permaculture farm where resident volunteers and staff are working to restore the cacao and the forest garden in a balanced ecological and sustainable way. Tour guests will experience a guided hike through our cacao forest while learning of the history and science of chocolate. Tour guests will also experience a chocolate tasting of several chocolates of single origin from small farms in Costa Rica.

    Guest will take a taste tour through the history of chocolate from an Aztec ceremonial drink to fine European style chocolate bars mixed with locally grown spices and herbs.

    Finally guests will tour the Chocolate Creation Lab where they get to "see how we do it!" Smell the aromas and taste the transformation from raw cocoa bean to fine tempered chocolate. Tennis Shoes or hiking shoes recommended...flip flops not recommended. Remember, CariBeans also makes great bean-to-bar chocolate in our small chocolate factory. Tour guests will have a chance to buy our special reserve hand made chocolate direct from our warehouse at discount prices.
