Tree to bar, bean to cup, from the VaiCacao family to yours: take a journey with us to Finca Cuyancua, the beloved family farm, where this Cacao love story was born! This beautiful farm is located in Atecozol, Izalco, a municipality of Sonsonate at 1,312 feet (400 meters) above sea level.

This area is named for the region’s original inhabitants, an indigenous tribe known as the Maleku, who still reside in the area.

Flavour: Soft, sweet, with subtle bread and fermented notes. Initial nutty notes which develop into earthier flavours, with slight notes of wood and bitter walnut. At the finish, some nutty astringency, with flavours of soft green banana.
