About Yojoa Chocolate

Meet Elmer and Nayely

In 2013, Yojoa Chocolate was born, a dream that arises from Elmer and Nayely's passion for planting, the land and the legacy of chocolate as ancestral heritage. Searching for fertile lands near Lake Yojoa in Honduras, they discover a place of extraordinary wealth: a land blessed with volcanic ash, a unique microclimate and majestic biodiversity.

With a deep love for nature, they sow the seeds of Trinitario and Criollo cocoa, baptizing each plot with names that carry the hope of seeing the land flourish: Santa Cecilia, San Diego, and San José.

The essence of Yojoa Chocolate lies in its commitment to sustainability and respect for the earth. They adopt agroforestry practices, embracing organic and ecological nature to honor biodiversity, animal welfare and ecological balance, in a tribute to ancestral farming methods.

Each cocoa bean is more than a fruit; It is a symbol of the intimate connection with the land and the passion that goes into every step of the process. Yojoa Chocolate represents the union between ancestral tradition and the modern vision, where chocolate is much more than a delicacy: it is the legacy of our ancestors, a tasty and rich history that carries with it the love for the land that nourishes us.

Why We Love Them

TREE TO BAR

The famous foot-shaped Lake Yojoa's microclimate, soil, and elevation carry the soul of the region. From planting seedlings to making chocolate, each chocolate bar tells a love story in the flavor and aroma of the land.

EMPOWERING WOMEN

Yojoa prioritizes employing women - both for harvesting and chocolate making. In a community offering few job opportunities for women, Yojoa invests in women because they invest in families and communities.

TRADITIONAL METHODS

Yojoa embraces sustainable, organic practices, respecting nature and honoring tradition. They value every tree and plant to preserve the land for future generations.
