Pacha de Cacao is a 100% natural and fresh cacao juice, full of nutrients and vitamins. It’s made from cacao pulp and water and… that’s it!
Funny enough, the nutritious benefits of the sweet cacao pulp has always been known by farmers. They guzzle on the beans for the pulp and spit out the bitter beans, as a fresh source of energy that keeps them fit during the day.
The pulp looks like a white lychee-type of flesh around the cacao beans. It goes to waste in normal cacao production because everyone is only after the beans, the main ingredient for chocolate!
A slow boost of positive energy
With Pacha we want to celebrate this ancient farmer tradition of using the pulp and make it into a fresh, fruity cacao juice. Rather than letting it go to waste, we turn the pulp into an extra source of income for cacao famers and give you a slow boost of positive energy!
“We rediscover the power of cacao fruit to help people, business & nature thrive going beyond chocolate”
A taste of the Amazon
What does it taste like? “Just imagine.. mango, lychee, pear, pineapple and honey – coming all together in one juice. Do we need to say more?” It’s a burst of fresh, fruity flavours. A beautiful balance between sweetness and acidity, with a tangy twist. It’s a taste of the Amazon!

The pulp is ethically sourced from farmers in Ecuador. The drink is partly made there and bottled in the Netherlands. Pacha is produced, distributed and marketed by Pacha de Cacao BV in the Netherlands. The company is founded by Marika van Santvoort, cacao expert, who spent her entire career working on sustainability in the cacao sector.
