Sirene - Ch'abil Chocolate Bar
Ch’abil means “nice” or “good” in Q’eqchi Mayan. In the lush, mountainous region of Alta Verapaz, Guatemala, you’ll find the indigenous Q’eqchi Maya farmers who grow a magnificent cacao bean. Their heritage traces thousands of years, back to chocolate’s probable origins in the ancient Mayan civilization, so clearly they have a bit of experience with cacao trees. This dark milk bar uses cardamom grown in the same region as the beans, with a bit of crunchy cacao nib added for texture.
