cacao honey guatemala

Tostaduria Antigua was the first ever coffee roaster in public  view when we opened in 1993 in Antigua Guatemala.In fact I had never seen coffee being roasted in store anywhere including California where roasting specialty high altitude arabica coffee first caught on .
However due to all the copy cat businesses that have appeared particulary since around 2008 who are mainly American Chistian missionary and even Harvard NGO businesses we are having a hard time competing as a simple business.
In 2005 we anticipated competition and invented as for as we can tell,the first chocolate honey bar but also one that onlky uses whole chocolate beans or cacao that comes directly from Guatemala rather than importing cocoa butter and cocoa powder and sugar.
But we were kicked out of our old store so the landlady could make more renting to the new comp├▒etition or copiers of our roasting operation.Since then we have been hidden and struggling.I f we receive more in donations than we need to recover we will give money to Mayan causes because those people have suffered so much themselves including massacres in the 1980s.

Helping our cacao honey bar and related cacao whole bean chocolate innovations business will also help  to
promote honey instead of the destructive sugar cane monocultures that have historically replaced and destroyed cacao forest farming agriculture that also benefits bees by giving them a home where other plants associated with diverse cacao agriculture provides pollen unlike a sugar cane monoculture which provides no pollen and in effect creates a bee desert.
Cacao honey bars are a technology as much as it is a recipe because simply adding cacao to form an edible whole bean cocao  honey chocolate bar eliminates the need to fine grind white sugar and add additional cocoa butter than is found in a chocolate sugar sweetened bar.
Making chocolate lovers aware of the honey alternative
also can create a new unprocessed chocolate bar alternative to all the other that depend on cocoa powder and cocoa butter and sugar as has been the case since the edible chocolate bar was invented by Fry in England in the 1840s,almost 20 years after the Dutch Houton father and son split the cacao bean into powder and butter with a press for the first time in 1827,destroying the cacao bean in my opinion.
