Cholaca

Boulder , CO, United States

Boulder, CO based Cholaca was founded in 2012, by Ira Leibtag, with one dream in mind: to bring healthy, organic and regeneratively farmed liquid cacao to the masses, while curating sustainable economic partnerships with farmers throughout Peru and Ecuador. Cholaca is pure liquid cacao made from one of the planet’s most nutrient-rich superfoods. This delicious product, available as a liquid or in baking wafer form, is also a natural stimulant and mood enhancer that can be enjoyed on its own and easily used in multiple recipes and is vegan, gluten free, dairy free and paleo friendly! Cholaca comes in a few varieties and is made from only two or three ingredients with no preservatives, emulsifiers or additives: this is pure cacao perfection we think you will love!
