VAICACAO PEOPLE

#VAICACAOLOVE

VAICACAO transforms pure single-origin cacao from our family's farm & more farmers in small areas across Mesoamerica, and crafts it into delicious, energizing cacao nibs, holistic ceremonial cocoa, and bean-to-bar craft chocolates, always respecting the traceability, authenticity, and personality of the cacao!

Why VAICACAO?

We are Elisa and JuanRa, and we love the magical taste and properties of real cacao and chocolate! 

We believe cacao and chocolate should be traceable, like coffee or wine, so we indicate on our product labels which farm the cacao came from. We choose cacao grown on sustainable family farms like ours in El Salvador, where JuanRa is from, and also select cacao grown on other Earth-friendly small farms throughout Central America, where we built meaningful relationships with other growers while working on projects across the region .

After the cacao is harvested, fermented, and dried, we transform it into healthful crunchy cacao nibs, rich ceremonial Holistic cacao, and artisanal bean-to-bar chocolate, at our small craft chocolate manufactory in Sardinia, Italy, where Elisa is from. 

Our products are always minimally-processed, as well as dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, and free of other additives, to help you be free to live a healthy lifestyle!

We adopt artisanal techniques, stone grinding the cocoa, avoiding aggressive industrial processes to preserve intrinsic volatile compounds and bring out the maximum personality of each of our selected cacaos in our micro-batches.
