Centuries ago, Mayans respected the power of cacao beans so much that it was worshipped as a gift from the gods. The "Food from the Gods" somewhere along the way lost its essence and became the super sweet chocolate we know today. Kacaou Farms, situated in the heart of the Mayan civilization, alongside one of the most beautiful rivers in Guatemala, Rio Dulce, is dedicated to the production of fine cacao (Trinitario-Mayan Red) and aiming to bring its essence again. Recently, Kacaou was selected as 1 of the fifty best beans of the 167 samples from 40 different countries for the Cocoa of Excellence Programme.
