Cholaca is connecting people all over the world with the true esence of the best cacao on the planet
The more cacao Cholaca purchases, the more rainforests we grow back. It’s that simple!
THAT’S WHY AT CHOLACA WE SAY: EVERY SIP SAVES OUR RAINFOREST!
We source our beans exclusively from heirloom cacao farms owned and operated by regenerative farmer cooperatives in Ecuador and Colombia. The elements perfectly converge in both locales and create optimal conditions for shade-grown, beyond-organic production adding exquisite flavor to our beans.
Our farmers are represented by the Regenerative Farming Cooperative who won the Fruit and Flowers taste-profile award in 2012, setting the standard for aromatic cacao production.
At Cholaca, we feel honored by the invitation these communities have extended us to partner in bringing this superior cacao to the world with the ethical integrity it deserves.
If you buy high quality single origin cacao and want to support sustainable farms through regeneration, you need to buy Cholaca’s 100% pure cacao. You will be a part of a group of conscientious chocolate lovers who have the ability to truly make a difference through what you buy.
We do this by committing to the 4 Seeds of Regenerative Cacao
Cholaca cacao is single-origin, so we partner with communities for the long-haul. These farmers have experienced enough industry exploitation. Cholaca has stopped this from continuing and we recognize that these farmers are on the cutting edge of regenerative agriculture. When you choose Cholaca, you stand behind our famers and stand up for our Planet.
We let our cacao speak for itself because it’s the real deal. 100% pure cacao. No separation into cocoa butter or powder. Cholaca is unsweetened and unadulterated with additives. If you love the pure essence of cacao as much as we do then you won’t find a better source out there than Cholaca!
We use the highest quality, independently-owned processing facilities available. We have made a commitment to build manufacturing and processing facilities that are owned and operated by the farmers themselves – cutting out the middleperson and allowing more wealth to stay in their communities.
We do business directly with the leading Regenerative Farming Cooperatives in Ecuador and Colombia. We are a certified Fair-Trade company, and we work with communities to form long-term partnerships that actively regenerate the social, economic, and ecological fabric of daily life.
