Deep in the foothills of northern Guatemala lies the village of Rocjá Pomtilá, a settlement of Maya Q’eqchi’ people who cultivate cacao, cardamom, and corn. Rocjá Pomtilá is located near the ancient Laguna Lachuá, a large pristine lake deemed a national park over four decades ago. The community’s cacao has only recently become commercially available, thanks to the efforts of a truly extraordinary organization, Cacao Verapaz. The name of the cacao association that purchases wet cacao from producers in Rocjá Pomtilá is ASODIRP, which processes those beans into export-ready cacao. But over the years Cacao Verapaz has become ASODIRP's primary market for cacao, as they pay a premium for quality and take care of all the import into the US & Europe.
