“True strength is when you can break a bar of chocolate into four pieces with your bare hands – then just eat one.” - Unknown

In late 2017, a group of friends and I planned a trip to hike up Machu Picchu, unfortunately for me, I had an accident leading up to the trip in which I fractured my knee. Unable to attend the trip, my friends promised to bring me back goodies from Peru as a consolation. 

When my friends arrived from Peru, they greeted me with the bag of goodies as promised. The bag included souvenirs, Peruvian coffee, and chocolate! The chocolate bars stood out the most. It was dark chocolate bars from República del Cacao. The packaging captured my eye right away, the chocolate bars had Quinoa, Maras Pink Rock Salt, and Mango. It was different. Captivated by the packaging, I immediately had to try.

For the next couple of days, I kept thinking about the dark chocolate bars I eat. I started researching more on dark chocolate bars and learned about all the health benefits. I knew I found my new indulgent. I started searching where to buy premium dark chocolate bars, unable to find what I was looking for, I knew I had to do something about it. So, Kekao.co was created.

The name Kekao comes from the pronunciation of cacao. Our goal at Kekao is to share the experience of premium dark chocolate bars with you. The benefits of dark chocolate are endless and the taste is ever so sweet.
