In 2007, we opened our small artisanal and cultural chocolate factory on Cozumel Island, in the Caribbean coast of Mexico. A family-owned business, we set out to make handmade, Mexican-single origin chocolate. Starting with only chocolate bars and offering 12 flavors we soon grew our product line to include other artisanal goods; honey infused with cocoa nibs, Mayan hot chocolate, chocolate covered coffee beans , as well as other delicious products. We pride ourselves in using only natural ingredients, no additives, no food coloring and no preservatives.

Our products are vegan and gluten-free.

We are members of a group of small local Cozumel producers; individuals and small businesses that are dedicated to providing unique and delicious Cozumel-crafted products. As members of this small organization we instill our passion into our main ingredient, Cacao. By combing its flavor with other natural and local ingredients we are constantly innovating ourselves; crafting new and exotic combinations to surprise the palate.
