The food of gods, a delightful experience
Upala chocolate is a single origin product, meaning that all cacao we use is been produce at our farm or by local growers in the same area. As a result of: producing endemic varieties and strict controls along all the process, we can assure a high quality dark chocolate to those who like to get delighted by a good pure chocolate.
The Upala Region of Costa Rica Known as having conditions suitable to production of a unique Criollo – type Cacao, is the home of Finca La Anita. Our family and local workers carefully transform this high-quality cacao into organic chocolate while maintaining the fragile rainforest ecology.
Upala is a Costa Rican region well known for having criollo type cacao trees for over 100 years. This allow us to keep reproducing the same old good strains combined with new varieties resistant to some deceases.
