Fuseproject has created a beautiful product sphere for The Nature Conservancy Talamanca Cacao that includes branding, packaging, and the development of a custom grinder/stirring stick used to brew the cocoa. The Bribri women of Talamanca, Costa Rica use sustainable farming practices, growing all of their prized cacao in the natural eco-system. Unlike traditional monoculture farming, the cacao plants grow in their native habitats, surrounded by immense biodiversity.
Their main product is 100% cacao (no suger added) that is hand formed in hard pucks. Fuseproject has designed a custom grinder/stirring stick that is used to grind the puck for brewing. The grinder features a micro-blade grinder attached to a wooden handle that has a built-in hook for hanging it on the lip of the mug. The packaging is all created from the burlap bags the beans are dried in.
