We want to Share the Love in everything we do, from how farmers are paid to how we caretake the earth, from the quality of our processing to the consistency of our product. This is why we guarantee what we make and know you’ll love it!
All our cacao is all from Guatemala, whose climate and soils grow some of the best cacao. We source exclusively from one family farm, located in an area with a long history as a prime cacao growing region.
The cacao is grown completely naturally, without the use of pesticides or other chemicals. We pay above international prices for cacao, ensuring that the small-scale farmers and workers all along the production process receive a fair wage.
The farm we work with selects premium varieties to plant and propagate. After the cacao pods are harvested, the cacao beans are fully fermented by professionals trained in this vital, often lacking, step. Once the beans have undergone their transformation, they are sun-dried and sent to our chocolate shops.
We work closely with artisanal chocolatiers who then precision roast the beans and remove the husks. The hand-crafted block of cacao we carry is made by grinding the nibs into a fine paste and tempering the final product.

Single Origin Ceremonial Cacao
<p>Cultivated with intention</p>
Our Single-origin cacao is from one family farm in Guatemala. Guatemala has a rich history connected to cacao, and the farm is located on the western coast of Guatemala, an area known as 'Costa Sur', which was historically the country’s center of cacao production and genetic research.

We pay a premium price for a premium product. Our long-term relationship offers us consistently high-quality cacao, and the farm access to a stable and high value market so the farmers can earn a living wage.
