Grown in Nicaragua - Stored in Minnesota

Enliven Cacao is grown in the rainforest mountains of Nicaragua, then shipped to the USA where it is hand-sorted and stored in our warehouse in Minnesota.

Direct Trade

Without the Risk


ALL of the benefits. NONE of the risks.

No importing hassles, no shipping worries, no quality mysteries, no language barriers. Enliven lives and works alongside the community, helping them perfect their harvesting, fermenting and drying techniques.

Before you buy enliven cacao, your beans have gone through multiple quality control steps, including a final hand sorting and review in our warehouse in Minneapolis. And enliven takes none of the profits.
