Cacao Junajpu is a small artesian company. We are passionate about cacao, and we are passionate and grateful to all life. It is our collective mission here at Cacao Junajpu to produce a magical, delicious and sustainable chocolate; a balanced, integral food, taking into account all the factors that allow us to do so with great respect and care.
Our passion for chocolate is total. That simple. And that’s how I like to keep our chocolate. Simple.
If you are in town, stop by the workshop. We'll be happy to show you around, and have a good chat.
Plus, there are always samples!
Founder ~ Gg
When I started my Journey with the Maya in 2000, it led me to cacao. I have been working with cacao, and my Maya friends, side by side since then; learning, growing, polishing both myself, and how we make cacao. I was initiated as a Maya Daykeeper, an Ajq'ij 13 years ago. The connections between Cacao Junajpu and the Maya, both past and present are numerous. Honoring tradition, sifting through ancient times, connecting to the present needs with one heart, and re-investing back into the communities and the Earth for the future.
