Looking Ahead To Valentine's Day? ChocoVivo's Cacao Is Sourced From Its Yucatan Farm

Valentine’s Day is still a few weeks away, but it’s never too early to start thinking about gift ideas, especially when they involve such a luxurious take on America’s favorite dessert - chocolate.

ChocoVivo is a full bean-to-bar chocolate maker that sources its chocolate from a farm in the Yucatan, the original location of cacao’s first domestication.

ChocoVivo creates its luxury chocolate using the same ancient methods of the Mayans. The beans are ground with flavorful and aromatic ingredients to provide a versatile and decadent result that can be enjoyed as-is or used in desserts, nut butters, hot drinks and more.

ChocoVivo has countless varieties of fresh chocolate, but for Valentine’s Day, they’re recommending the following flavors for those looking to spice things up in a pretty sweet way:

  • Mayan Tradition : Described as having a taste similar to a Red Hot, ChocoVivo says this blend is among their most popular. Mayan Tradition starts with a strong burst of cinnamon before fading into a smooth but spicy chili flavor.
  • Cherries and Almonds with Black Peppercorns : This one-of-a-kind blend incorporates ingredients you’d normally find in trail mix, but the natural flavors of the chocolate bring out the best of both worlds. The black peppercorns are ground into the chocolate to accentuate the cherries and provide a subtle mint-like flavor.
