What better way to encourage group engagement than by setting off together on an adventure into the wild and luxurious world of chocolate? Ask yourself, do you know where chocolate comes from? Do you know where it grows, what it looks like raw, how it’s processed? Regardless of whether or not you can winnow and mélange with the best of them, Nativo-by-Thrivu (pronounced Tree-voo) offers you an exclusive look not only into the how beans are transformed into bars, but also the rich and varied history – and future – of chocolate. Learn the difference terroir makes, the tasting notes specific to different growing regions, the difference between white, milk, and dark chocolate, how to taste like an expert…and most importantly, learn more about what you and your group like! Are you a 50%? Or maybe 60% or 85%? Maybe you’re an inclusions person, or a 100% purist!
During our customized experience, you’ll also learn more about our mission, “Supporting thriving tribes, one chocolate at a time.” All of our chocolate is produced and processed at origin, helping ensure more of the profit stays where it can do the most good. Moreover, we're dedicated to regenerative agriculture. Cacao trees serve as a great understory crop, making them a key player in widespread regeneration and broad environmental impact.
