Message // Experience // Value // Vision
Born from a love and fascination for the cacao tree and her fruits. Dreamt up in Ecuador and handmade in Amsterdam.
Chocoláctica's intention is to convey that we can share moments while we enjoy delicious food that are nourishing and wholesome for our body and spirit.
Mother Earth is our biggest inspiration.
Always exploring new realms to inspire the palette.
Our plantbased delicacies inspire a moment of silence with Self, or a precious moment shared with friends and loved ones.
The different flavours and textures stimulates your senses and triggers your mind-body connections so that you can shift from head/mind/thoughts to sensations bringing you to the present moment.
We stand for raising our awareness through being conscious of what you take into your body and share with others. These times ask for a holistic way of life in connection with Self and Nature.
Chocoláctica is an expression of gratitude. An offering to Nature and to you. A way of sharing the joy of creation. An invitation to continue the cycle of sharing, spreading love everywhere.
Let's re-establish the connection with Nature and ourSelves through food.

"Chocoláctica is my reverence to Nature in the form of handcrafted, cacao-inspired delicacies."
My first contact with this amazing tree and its fruit was in Bali, Indonesia.
I saw the fruit grow wild and tasted cacao nibs and raw chocolate for the first time. It made a lasting impact.
The real LOVE AFFAIR started while I lived in Ecuador.
I was amazed by the mystic, wild amazon and the thousands of cacao trees in their natural habitat.
During those years I indulged in the best cacao in the world. I learned about the history, use, processing and benefits and started experimenting & creating with this age old ingredient.
I find inspiration for my recipies from traveling and learning about (sometimes lost) traditions of cooking from different cultures. I am especially amazed by the science of Ayurveda and how food, nature and humans are innately connected.
I have a very strong pull towards spirituality and consider everything I do as a means and ritual towards Divinity.
I have had the good fortune of growing up and living in different countries and therefore consider myself human being, of this earth, complying with the concept of nationality and tradition to the necessary extent.
When I’m not in the kitchen, I am practicing yoga & meditation or rock climbing and bouldering with my friends.
Or maybe I'm just out drinking an oat latté somewhere in Amsterdam.
