KYYA is passionate about chocolate.During the 2012 Christmas Holidays, we were part of a non-profit working at a Ugandan orphanage. Overwhelmed at the immense need, and thinking about our four adopted daughters, we had to do something.
After researching the natural resources of Uganda, we decided on chocolate.On the 31 hour journey home, we created the framework for KYYA, the first bean-to-bar chocolate company in the region.
The correct spelling of KYYA is from the Greek — KAIA — meaning "pure". During our first six months, we made ~50 batches of mostly really bad chocolate. Once we figured out what we liked, we sold the first 25 bars to a local coffee shop and KYYA launched.We still make small batches of chocolate to highlight the flavor inherent in cacao from around the world. Where we can, we own our supply chain and work directly with our farmers.
KYYA is much more than a chocolate company — we have a heart and soul for people around the world.Feel free to email the team with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or check out our Facebook or Instagram @KYYAchocolate.
