Since 1852

1852 - Origins

The history of Chocolates Lacasa begins in the town of Jaca in Huesca, where Antonio Lacasa founded in 1852 a store focused from the beginning on the production of chocolate.


Cocoa trees are grown in the shade, and in lowlands, up to about 700m.

It is in October when the main harvest is carried out, and therefore higher quality, and in March, the secondary harvest. And what do we mean by good harvest? Higher fat content and larger cocoa beans.

A typical pod contains 30 to 40 beans and each tree produces 30 pods. It takes 400 of those grams to produce about 450g of cocoa.
