Kankel Cacao flees from conventionalism and preconceived models. Nothing is marked by percentages. It is the subtle combination of factors and manoeuvres that allow extracting new experiences from cacao. Kankel Cacao is committed to terroir. Going beyond soil, climate or typography, collective wisdom resulting from the work of the people with the natural environment gives these original products distinctive characteristics. Transport to the places of origin at the starting point of our proposal, the essence of each territory is collected in a cacao bean and transformed - without any intervention - into a tablet or a truffle in which the variety and the elaboration process are manifested without artifice.
