Tsuru Sweets: A Beautiful Complement to Your Perfect Day
Tsuru means ‘cacao’ in Bribri, a Costa Rican indigenous group. Bribri people are known for their cultivation of the magical plant, and their mythology captures its inner beauty.
Three sisters once caught the attention of the gods, and Sibu, the creator, claimed the women as his own. Tsuru had a beautiful spirit while her two sisters were blessed with unearthly beauty. She loved all things. When Sibu tested the sisters by appearing in an ugly form, only Tsuru accepted him for what she saw on the inside. They married and Sibu blessed her with heavenly beauty.
With elegant-yet-sassy confectionery, Tsuru Sweets uses gourmet sweets to celebrate women, beauty and nature. These sweets are responsibly sourced from around the world. Chef Paola and her team take pride in crafting indulgent treats that contain the highest-quality cacao from around the world. The responsible and ethical partnerships they have with other companies fosters a creative and supportive space.
