Belize 70% Buttons

These chocolate buttons are perfect for baking or enjoying as a snack. The buttons are hand deposited by our production team. 

The cacao beans from Belize are from a private fermentary which was set up to increase and stabilise the income of smallholder cocoa farmers. Maya Mountain Cacao purchases wet beans from multiple farmers and combine them during the fermentation and drying process. This combination also improves the quality of the cacao by centralising the post-harvesting processes. Maya Mountain Cacao is the first specialty grade cacao coming out of Belize.

Our Process

From the harvest and sorting, through roasting and winnowing, to grinding and pouring - every bar of our chocolate takes almost a week to make and it’s all done in our factory in Cremorne. We start with small samples and explore the characteristics of each batch before developing a new variety of chocolate.


Fine cooking chocolate within the whisks and spoons of the considered home cook is incredibly faithful. Good dark chocolate, for its sheen and aroma allows a cook to edge towards ideas bitter and savoury, only brought back with knobs of butter, slips of cream and artful sweetening. The unmissable presence of chocolate in a dish justifies the use of distinction. Poor chocolate simply won't hide under the covers. These unfettered recipes have been shared with us faithfully, from chefs, who we wholly admired. We share them with you in the hope of adding us to your repertoire.
