Itacaré, Bahia, Brazil is part of what it is called “Cocoa Coast”. I had to take advantage of my time while there and look for the opportunity to find the best key ingredient in order to make our handmade Brazilian candy with a 100% organic Brazilian cocoa.

That’s the Cocoa Jelly – delicious!
“Café Cacau” is a much known Cocoa business in the region, they have good reviews on Trip Adviser, plus I found a lot of news in the internet about Marly and her amazing Cocoa business.
In one of the articles I found online, Marly says that she considers it a gift the fact that she was raised by her father on a farm. She learned how to preserve the nature and take advantage of it. Beca, her father, used to gather his kids and show them all the hard work the ants do, and then tell his kids that the humans have to do the same in order to survive.
I had the chance to talk to her and tell about our business here in Michigan, she is a sweetheart and will be more than happy to do business with us here at the Doce B Shop.
We know it is a long way for the toasted seeds to travel, but Marly said they last up to one year. J
