Top quality from our own farm

Criollo cocoa beans like ours can only be grown in Central America due to the geographic and climatic conditions. Grown wild in the rainforests of Guatemala, our Maya cacao is hand-harvested, fermented, sun-dried, lightly roasted and shelled. The beans are further processed and refined in small batches, which is how our cacao nibs develop their fine and subtle nuances.

In recent years, we have planted many cocoa trees with the aim of creating a plantation that is as regenerative and environmentally friendly as possible. The trees are planted directly from the seeds, of course we use the "cacao criollo" variety - this creates unique Criollo cocoa mass and Criollo cocoa beans.

Noble cocoa, suitable for cocoa ceremonies

We are constantly working to produce the highest quality cocoa possible and to improve our methods. For this we rely on our own plant genetics, our friendly neighboring farms are also involved. In order to preserve biodiversity on our plantations, we plant many other trees such as orange, teak, bananas, etc. to avoid monocultural cultivation and thus to be able to ensure our excellent quality in the long term.

This special care and the heart and soul of our cocoa professionals can be found in every single bean. This is another reason why our energetic cocoa is suitable for every cocoa ceremony.
