When Xocoaltl's founder tasted these beans from the CAC Pangoa cooperative in Peru's Amazon, she flashed-back to her grandmother's apple pie. So she decided to add hints of vanilla and warm spices to accentuate the cacao's natural personality. The result will leave you swearing there are apples in this bar.

With a toddler and newborn in tow, Elaine Read + Matt Weyandt headed to a sleeply little town on the edge of the jungle in Costa Rica. There, they learned how to make chocolate from the local cacao growers. When they eventually came home to Atlanta, they started Xocolatl (chock-oh-LAH-tul) to make small batch chocolate in their micro-factory. Named after the sacred word for chocolate in the Olmec, Mayan and Aztec languages, Xocolatlremains inspired by their jungle adventures.
