The cacao belt of our planet is 20 degrees north and 20 degrees south of the equator. This is the only zone in the world where cacao can grow.
Founded by the Esteves family in Carabobo, Venezuela, the idea dates back to 2010 but did not materialize until 2017, when 20/20 started crafting artisanal bars in their house. In 2019, they decided to move to a proper facility that was equipped with all the necessary machinery to ensure the quality of the bars. The designs that are displayed in their packaging are made by Maaku, a true chocolate lover and part of the Esteves family (mother of the founder).
20/20 focuses on charing the origins of their beautiful country and its high-quality genetics. Using cacao from their own farms and from some local producers, they craft plain bars and some inclusions that represent very local elements of the folklore. 20/20 are tree-to-bar makers in the Mantuano and Yaracuy origins. Some of the inclusion bars include mango verde with salt, Trinidad scorpion chili, chicha & canela, Amazonian copoazu, among many others.
20/20 is proud to announce that, in the past year, they have planted over 60,000 trees in their farms, including Hacienda Luna Clara & La Cocorota. Their goal is to keep growing and provide chocolate fans with the best quality bars made with sustainable Venezuelan cacao.
