Cacao is becoming part of the Costa Rican Agriculture. Villages in the Talamanca Region have been growing Cacao trees. They have learnt that the best way to get a good price for the Cacao is by turning it into Cacao powder. The Yorkin village is building a cacao powder factory. They will be able to get double the amount of money because they are processing their own cacao. The dry seeds only got the farmers $4 a kilo. No they can get more money for their produce and the money supports the community not large corporations.
