To support and showcase the Bribri women of Talamanca in Costa Rica, who make organic cocoa in a natural ecosystem and preserve the native rain forest, fuseproject created packaging and an accessory tool for their cocoa patties, which are 100% cocoa with no added sugar.

Inspired by the burlap sacks used locally for storage, they designed a biodegradable, reusable packaging to place the patties in. They also created a tool for grating the patties and stirring the hot cocoa drink, with a hook to attach it to the side of a mug.
