I'm pleased to share with you a collection of my favorite artisanal chocolate bars 1.

El Ceibo is entirely owned by, made up of and run for the benefit of its members: Bolivian farmers and their families who have been working since 1977 to produce organic and Fairtrade cocoa beans and cocoa products, such as chocolates, liquor and butter.
El Ceibo is a "second-floor cooperative", which means it is entirely owned by smaller cooperatives spread throughout the Alto Beni region.
Today El Ceibo has more than 1,200 associates, all small farmers, and generates direct employment for over 100 people. It sells its products in Bolivia and is an exporter since the early 1980s.
From the trees to the beans to the chocolate, El Ceibo can genuinely proclaim: "We do not work with the farmers, we are the farmers!"

Our export range was developed in collaboration with international consultant Chloé Doutre-Roussel .

There finest products
They are made from the finest organic bolivian cacao, brought from the bolivian Amazon , towards the high mountains to La Paz, at 3600 msnm, where they become into our best chocolates, under strict quality messures.

The Heritage cocoa is nature's wild gift to Covendo region of Alto Beni. Heritage of nature and traditions, cocoa grows there naturally, not cultivated, simply harvested for generations.
