We are all about...
Heirloom & Fine Flavor Cacao
At THE COCOA FORGE, we have
a laser focus on heirloom and fine-flavor cacao. We are passionate about shining
a spotlight on these amazing and endangered varietals. Only by cultivating curiosity and elevating awareness of their existence will they be preserved.
This chocolate pool is deep, dark and mysterious. Jump in.
Join us on this bittersweet adventure.
THE COCOA FORGE
Cycle of Discovery
Tasting REAL chocolate
Most people have never tasted real chocolate, and yet in history...wars were fought over these beans. They were used as a currency and more valued than gold. They were present at every life ceremony. This was back when flavor mattered. Before major commercialization and industrial processing. Let's not lose them.
Have YOU tasted real chocolate??
Bringing Back Cargo Sailing
The CEIBA is going to sail into our one particular harbor (you Jimmy Buffet fans you) bringing precious cacao from far away enchanted lands. Be there. It will be a party. Like with a brass band and everything.
Along with sustainable cargo shipping by sail with her 300 MT temperature controlled cargo hold, the Ceiba will also be a Sail Training vessel. This is not only important for THE COCOA FORGE, but also a huge opportunity to bring back cargo shipping by sail to the West Coast - which has been absent for over 100 years. Yep, it's a giant deal.
