Xoca (sho’ka) is the first-of-its-kind prebiotic soda made from naturally fermented cacao fruit juice. We upcycle the discarded components of the cacao fruit to provide support for a healthy gut and strong immune system.

Xoca is the brainchild of a small group of cacao enthusiasts with extremely different backgrounds — a rainforest conservationist, a design wizard, and an actual rocket scientist.
Our story begins in the backwoods of Ecuador, where Jerry (rainforest conservationist) became obsessed with cacao farming. In the capital city of Quito he met Carl (the design wizard). The two of them created a pioneering Ecuadorian dark chocolate company called To’ak. Together with Servio, a fourth generation cacao farmer, they started to experiment with innovative ways to use the fruit of the cacao tree.
One day they were tasting something they were calling "Cacao Fruit Honey" new from To’ak’s farm in Ecuador made from upcycled cacao fruit juice. When Riley mixed the honey with sparkling water and our Cacao Fruit Soda was born.
Since that day, our Xoca family has grown . Together we are bound by a commitment to pure and simple foods that honor land, people, and the creative process...with an unapologetic bias toward all things cacao.
The simplest and most straightforward way to consume Xoca is to drink it on its own. It tastes best when cold, so enjoy it well chilled or poured over ice. However, if you are so inclined, Xoca also happens to be an excellent mixer. Xoca pairs well with just about any spirit, but it is an especially good choice for those looking for a healthier alternative to the traditional Rum & Coke and Red Bull Vodka.
