How Kaitxo began
Kaitxo is Koffee and is Chocolate, handcrafted in Balmaseda, Bizkaia
It all grew out of our fondness for these exotic products and our passion for making specialty coffees and chocolates. Jon Mikel became interested in coffee in the family cafe.
Since she was young, Raquel enjoyed discovering the best “gourmet” chocolates in the world, tasting them and collecting their packages dreaming of those cocoa plantations. The flavours, the smells, the taste… in our family we love long chats after meals, in which our interest in cuisine is always the focus.
So in 2017 we decided to create our own brand, Kaitxo, to bring you the best coffees and chocolates.
We are proud to be a great team, as well as a great family.
We put all the care in the world in preparing each Kaitxo coffee or chocolate and, in turn, we want to value the work of the coffee growers and of all the people working in cocoa plantations.
We promote social responsibility, so that farmers receive a fair price for their work.
There is a story behind each Kaitxo coffee or chocolate, the story of people who select the seeds, care for their crops and harvest using environmentally friendly techniques.
When the raw material arrives at our workshop we follow an artisan process: a result of our time dedicated to research, our hard work, passion and dedication.
