About us

Our history

In 2021, Mr. Eliodoro G. Maciba planted the seeds of a dream – DonCris Cacao, a humble cacao farm nestled in the heart of Barangay Binakalan, Gingoog City. With a passion for helping out the farmers and producing premium and export quality beans, Mr. Eliodoro together with his daughter, set out to produce the finest cocoa liquor and tablea, building a foundation for a legacy that would extend far beyond his lifetime.

Tragically, in the same year, Mr. Eliodoro left this world, leaving his daughter, Christina, to carry the torch. Fueled by her father’s vision and driven by a determination to honor his memory, Christina embarked on a journey to transform DonCris Cacao into more than a farm – into a haven for artisanal handcrafted chocolates.

Crafting Dreams, Creating Experiences

Today, DonCris Cacao stands as a testament to the resilience of dreams. Guided by a renowned chocolatier, we’ve expanded our offerings beyond mere chocolates – we craft experiences. Each piece is a symphony of flavors, a blend of passion, and a testament to the dedication that began with Mr. Eliodoro. Currently, we are producing two products; DonCris Pure Tablea and DonCris Chocolade. These two are made of 100% all natural ingredients. DonCris Chocolade is an exquisite blend of art and flavor. Each piece is a testament to our dedication to quality and a nod to the Danish word for chocolate – Chocolade.
