– Harvested and Handcrafted –

In Guatemala

Ixcacao makes the highest quality premium chocolate, harvested and handcrafted in Guatemala.

Our chocolate bars are made with locally grown cacao, fresh roasted nuts, and pure refined oils.

Ixcacao is one of few companies in the world whose chocolate is made in the same region in which the cacao is grown. The ingredients that go into Ixcacao chocolate are meticulously selected and handled with the highest standard of care. For this reason we know that you’ll taste the difference from the very first bite.

In addition to being processed near its source, our chocolate is carefully made and packaged by hand, batch by batch, bar by bar. With all of the care and attention that goes into our products, it’s easy to see why premium chocolate lovers choose Ixcacao.

Our Part to Help Others


Our goal is that every person involved in the process of growing, harvesting, handling, processing, and transporting our chocolate is paid and treated fairly. 10% of our profits are donated to non-profit organizations that support local Mayan health, education, and sustainable alternative income generation programs. We ensure that there is no child labor on the farms where our cacao is harvested.
