What does 20/20 Chocolates mean?
Our name references nothing less than the cacao belt of our planet, 20 degrees north and 20 degrees south of the equator. This is the only zone in the world where cacao can grow.
The same reference is portrayed in each of our chocolate bars, where the hole
is the Earth and the stripe that crosses it is the cacao belt.
When was it founded?
Founded by the Esteves family in Carabobo, Venezuela, the idea dates back to 2010 but did not materialize until 2017, when we started crafting artisanal bars in our house.
The designs that are displayed in our packaging are made by Maaku, a true chocolate lover and part of the Esteves family (mother of the founder).
In 2019 we decided to move to a proper facility that was equipped with all the necessary machinery to ensure the quality of our bars.
Our emphasis is to promote the origins of our beautiful country and its high-quality genetics.
Using cacao from our own farms and from some local producers, we craft plain bars and some inclusions that represent very local elements of our folklore. We are tree-to-bar makers in our Mantuano and Yaracuy origins. Some of our inclusion bars include mango verde with salt, Trinidad scorpion chili, chicha & canela, Amazonian copoazu, among many others.
We are proud to announce that in the past year we have planted over 60,000 trees in our farms, including Hacienda Luna Clara & La Cocorota. Our goal is to keep growing and provide chocolate fans with the best quality bars made with sustainable Venezuelan cacao.
