Note on the spelling of cacao and cocoa :
*In German-speaking countries, cocoa means cocoa powder. However, our ceremony cocoa is made from 100% cocoa mass and is therefore of higher quality overall than cocoa powder. That's why the spelling "Cacao" is usually correct, as it means the cocoa mass with cocoa and cocoa butter. In German-speaking countries, most people do not know this distinction between cacao and cocoa and “Kakao” (with “K”) is also commonly used for this. That's why we use it for simplicity's sake “Cocoa” and then for the product description on the packaging “Cacao.”

We at Theyo have specialized in the production and curation of chocolate products made from traceable and transparently traded fine flavor cocoa. Each cacao bean has a unique flavor profile that is influenced by climate, soil and farm management. We love these original flavors and try to bring them out in all our products. No artificial flavors and additives, no frills, but with fair and sustainable supply chains!


Guayas, Los Ríos, Manabi, Esmeraldas Ecuador, Guayaquil became the first cocoa port in the world after the export ban was lifted and the era of the Ecuadorian cocoa monopoly began. The cocoa trade thrived until the 1920s, when disease spoiled the cocoa crop and the effects of the stock market crash brought the cocoa industry to its knees and destroyed it. It was only decades later that the government managed to promote cocoa production through subsidies. This was achieved primarily thanks to the predominant stock of Nacional Arriba fine cocoa. The perfect mix of climate, terrain and equatorial location give Ecuadorian cocoa beans their special flavors.
