KYYA is passionate about chocolate. It’s why we work to build relationships with farmers around the globe and pay above fair trade prices for cacao.
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 KYYA, the first bean-to-bar chocolate company in Arkansas. The name is Greek — KAIA — meaning "pure". During our first six months, we made over 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 was launched.
We still make small batches of chocolate to maximize the flavor inherent in the single source cacao beans. No artificial flavors or additives. 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 the people around the world with whom we work.
