By now, Boholanos are all aware of how Philippine weather can be during the next few weeks. Unfortunately, blue and warm skies have left Filipinos once again in exchange for cloudy and rainy skies. But let’s not be disheartened, for one soothing hot cup of chocolate drink can keep you warm and calm on a rainy day.

Luckily, for Boholanos, chocolate, cacao, or as locals call it—tableya has become one of Bohol’s pride. Inspired by a small community in San Isidro, Balai Cacao is now a registered and accredited producer of tablea in Tagbilaran City, Bohol. They have a lot to offer on a cold day—from sweetened with muscovado to unsweetened tablea. To find out more about their physical store and products, read on!

The land of Chocolate Hills is not only about the jaw-dropping scenery of the world-famous attraction but also about this round-shape delicacy. Until now, it continues to warm Filipino homes with its packed tableas.



The physical store of Balai Cacao is located along Saligumba Street in Manga District, Tagbilaran City. Locally grown and harvested by small farmers in San Isidro, these pure beans are processed by Balai Cacao into various chocolate bars and tablea.

When it rains, hot chocolate pours!

While most parts of the country are still in quarantine because of the pandemic, dine-ins are not everyone’s cup of tea. Luckily, anyone can make a hot chocolate drink at home using Balai Cacao’s tablea. For sweet tooths, Balai Cacao’s Sweetened with Muscovado Tablea (PhP180) is a must-try. Meanwhile, Balai Cacao’s Pure Unsweetened Tablea (PhP130) makes an ideal hot drink for those who want to tone down their sugar. With Balai Cacao’s tablea flavors, you would want to sit beside the window and dream of sipping a hot mug of their delicious chocolate.

Apart from their physical store in Tagbilaran City, they can also ship their products nationwide.
