ORIGIN TYPE: Individual Farm what’s this? 1 farmers, Established 2010

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.

CHALLENGES

We are three siblings that 25 years ago lost our father on the farm. Carried away by the feeling of not wanting to go back, we stepped away for almost 20 years. That made our soil became less fertile when we started the plantation and a challenge we have been working on.
