Taste A Legend


Based on a legendary Venezuelan sauce called Guasacaca, Kumana's story goes back centuries. The origins of Guasacaca are a mystery, with no one knowing for certain what the original recipe was or how it got its name. It most likely started as a sauce with native Venezuelans over 500 years ago. The sauce is an expression of Venezuela's lush abundance, a country where the Andes meets the Caribbean. It's vital ingredients: avocados, onions, bell peppers, and parsley grow year-round. The sauce grew in popularity through the centuries, with each family making their homemade recipe and passing it down by word of mouth and tradition. 


Our great-great-grandparents had Guasacaca for the first time shortly after they arrived in Venezuela in the mid-1800s, and we've been making it ever since. Our family came from Italy and settled in the eastern part of the country, near the town of Cumana - where Kumana got its name. 


When you taste Kumana, your tasting 500 years of history condensed into one bottle. You're enjoying the rich flavors of the Andes combined with the freshness of the Caribbean. If it's been around this long, you bet it tastes great.
