Pacha de Cacao

Pacha de Cacao - Cacao Juice- 250ml

€3.50 EUR

Pacha de Cacao is a 100% natural & fresh cacao juice, full of nutrients and vitamins. It’s made from cacao pulp and water… that’s it! This refreshing drink gives you a slow boost of positive energy. It’s a great source of magnesium, manganese, phosphorus and vitamin B1.

There is 250 ml in each glass bottle. We safely pack the juice in firm carton. We also ship internationally.

What does it taste like?
Actually, our juice tastes nothing like chocolate although pulp around the cacao is the main ingredient. Imagine mango, lychee, pear, pineapple and honey… all coming together in one glass. Need we say more?

What about vitamins & nutrients?

  • Magnesium: Essential for a good heart rhythm, strong bones and energy.
  • Manganese: Essential for good skin and blood regulation.
  • Phosphorus: The main function of phosphorus is in the formation of bones and teeth. It plays an important role in how the body uses carbohydrates and fats. It keeps the body healthy.
  • Vitamin B1: Changes food into energy.

Why is this good for me?

Many reasons! We‘ll give you 5: 1. It’s 100% natural! That means: no concentrate, no additives and no added sugar. Just pulp and water. 2. It’s refreshing and nutritious. Phosphorus, Magnesium, Manganese and Vitamin B1 to name a few, will give you the slow boost of positive energy we keep talking about. 3. We are forgetting an important one: Theobromine! Similar to coffee, but much friendlier and softer. A heart opener. It also helps wakefulness, lowers blood pressure and is a mood-uplifter. It makes you happy! 4. It’s naturally gluten-free, suitable for vegetarians and vegans. 5. It’s made from cacao pulp, now an unused product in the cacao supply chain. By using the pulp, we pay farmers an extra stream of income from the same fruit.

How is it made?

When farmers open the cacao fruits, the beans and pulp are removed. From there the pulp is then brought to a juice factory where it is squeezed without damaging the beans inside. The beans go into one direction, the pulp to another. The juice is pasteurized before it is shipped to the Netherlands for bottling. Et voila! Ah. We make it sound so simple.

What does the name mean?

Pacha comes from the Quechua word for ‘soil’ and ‘earth’ and de cacao is Spanish for ‘of cacao’. Together they stand for ‘world of cacao’. We wanted to create a strong link to Pachamama, the female goddess, Mother Earth, who is an important concept in most of the Latin American cultures. We believe that we need to give back to Earth, and we do so by using the cacao pulp and preventing from it being wasted.

What is Pacha de Cacao?

A 100% natural and nutritious cacao juice made from the fresh pulp of the cacao fruit. The pulp is a white substance covering the cacao beans. It gets lost during normal cacao production, because the industry is not interested.

Who is behind Pacha de Cacao?

The company was founded by Marika van Santvoort in 2020 but her plan dates from way before that! Marika is a cacao expert and works as a sustainability advisor to the industry, helping them to make supply chains more sustainable. While working on a project in Ecuador in 2017, a farmer told her about the nutritious benefits of the cacao pulp. From then on, she became extremely committed to use the cacao pulp to make a fresh drink. And here we are, 3 years later! And shout out to Positivity for our branding and Opper for developing our website.
