According to the Aztecs, Quetzalcóatl, God of vegetation and its renewal taught men how to cultivate the cocoa tree.

Native to the Amazon, Criollo cocoa, an ecotype recognized for its taste, aromatic and nutritional qualities, today represents around 1% of world production. This scarcity is due to the fact that this original cocoa is less profitable than those obtained by hybridization to supply the chocolate industry.

Our fava beans come from these original varieties. Our partner has developed a transformation process inspired by ancestral artisanal techniques that does not exceed 45°C, thus preserving the famous nutrients of cocoa.

This powder is a source of Iron and Manganese. It is rich in Copper.

Iron helps reduce fatigue.

Iron and Copper contribute to the normal functioning of the immune system.

Copper and Manganese contribute to the protection of cells against oxidative stress.


Sol Semilla sourced these high quality Criollo cocoa fava beans from a partner closely linked to a village community in the Satipo region of Peru. This impoverished and isolated community lives mainly from the cultivation of cocoa.

Thanks to your purchase, this community sees its living conditions improve: construction of a nursery, a school, drinking water and electricity system,… and its income increase thanks to fixed prices higher than the fluctuating market price. In addition, our partner provides technical support to producers.


The powder is used in baking and in many savory and sweet preparations, dishes, desserts and drinks.
