ABOUT US

WHO ARE WE?

hecho en cozumel seal

We are a family operated business dedicated to the creation of handmade Mexican chocolate products. We are located on the beautiful island of Cozumel, Mexico and have been in business since 2007. Because we are family owned, we are passionate about what we do. We are dedicated to sharing the magic behind our chocolate and the origins and history of chocolate in Mexico. Chocolate is deeply rooted in the Mexican culture, beginning with its ancestry in the Mayan culture. It is the Mayans who considered cacao to be a sacred food and we too believe that there is something very enchanting about chocolate. Visit us to learn more or check out our “about chocolate” section.

HOW IT ALL STARTED..

During a trip to Tabasco and Chiapas, Mexico is where we first discovered the history behind Mexican cacao. We learned about the importance of cacao to the Mayan culture and of course had the opportunity to taste the deliciousness of the criollo cacao bean. After this visit to the “mainland”, we began making chocolate bars in our small Cozumel island workshop. We experimented with the chocolate and cacao beans to create unique products. Visitors to this beautiful Caribbean island started to buy our products. We expanded the sales into local retailers where our products became the perfect gift for loved ones. Soon we decided to open a little chocolate museum next to our small factory where today we receive many visitors. Book a factory tour TODAY!
