 Product Description

  • 100% Organic Food Federation certified cacao beans

  • Farmed in the foothills of the mountains and forests of the Peruvian Amazon by local small holders, all our cacao products come from UTZ certified farms giving better terms to local farmers

  • Made from 100% Criollo Cacao Beans prized for their amazing flavour

Our cacao beans are from the Peruvian amazon, the spiritual home of cacao. Our beans are 100% organic raw Criollo cacao, prized for their superior flavour.

Our cacao products are not roasted or Dutch processed (alkalized), making them raw.

Cacao beans are the base ingredient for all cacao products. These beans have not been processed at all other than being washed and gently dried.

None of our cacao products contain any additives or preservatives. This is 100% cacao, nothing added, nothing taken away!

Our cacao is also kosher.

Cacao and Peru have a long history together, with the fruit and its beans having been enjoyed by natives long before it was exported worldwide.

Cacao has a few different varieties; however, the Criollo variety is growing rapidly in popularity due to its higher quality resulting from greater fat content. Exquisite Peruvian cacao is well suited to agroforestry systems, which have less environmental impact compared to plantations in West Africa where it is typically grown in direct sunlight with fertilisers. This has led to substantial deforestation and makes Peruvian cacao a more sustainable option.

Almost all of Peru’s cacao is grown by small holders who rely on cacao’s weekly harvest (the main harvest is from April – September, known locally as la cosecha grande) as their main source of income. Their crop is then sold to cooperatives who act as intermediaries; the cacao is then processed in Peru before being trucked to Lima and exported to the UK where we lovingly package it before sending it to you.
