More than just single origin, each batch of Cotton Tree Chocolate starts with cocoa beans from a single day's harvest from a single farmer.
We work with local farmers towards environmental, economic, and social sustainability.
We exclusively use cocoa beans grown by our location in Punta Gorda Town in the Toledo District of southern Belize.
We offer tours of our factory everyday during regular Belizean business hours:
- Monday to Friday 8-12 noon and 1:30 to 5 p.m.
- Saturday 8 to 12 noon.
We also have a chocolate gift shop in our factory, with many unique items, including chocolate soap and cocoa bean jewelry. You will find beautiful gifts to take home, many of which are sold exclusively here at Cotton Tree Chocolate.
Also near Punta Gorda is our sister company, Cotton Tree Lodge. Cotton Tree Lodge hosts several 'chocolate weeks' each year, where guests can totally immerse themselves in a chocolate experience, including touring cocoa farms and making their own chocolate bars.
