This Mayan Criollo Cacao grows in an organic food forest in Guatemala. The Maya have a long history of cacao tradition that still exists today. Criollo is a rare native cacao variety.
The genetic variety of this cacao is native to the land and the Maya people. The cacao beans are white instead of dark purple. The taste is softer and the effect is stronger, which is beautiful in a pure drink. The farm has a regrowth project to bring back this native variety in a natural way, growing the trees from seed and hand selecting the beans on quality.
Our cacao is 100% natural and pure, without sugar or additives.
