About Itzamna's Cocoa

Our story

Having been passionate about working with Chocolate since I was 18, now 25, I have finally reached the stage where I can start my own business, making and selling handmade chocolates from our kitchen in the North Yorkshire Moors.

Behind the name

The name was suggested to me by family, knowing I was struggling to come up with one. Having checked up on it I found that Itzamna was one of the gods of the Mayan Pantheon and he had instructed humans in the proper cultivation of cocoa and maize. This made the name tie in with other interests of mine, mythology and history and I couldn't say no, despite how often I have to explain where it comes from.
