 Product Description

organic-food-federation.pngNote: The 5kg and 25kg block options are a solid block of cacao butter. They do not come in individual 1kg packets.

The beans used to make our organic cacao butter are grown in the Peruvian amazon, the spiritual home of cacao. Our beans are 100% organic raw Criollo cacao beans, prized for their superior flavour over other varieties.

Our cacao products are neither roasted nor Dutch processed (alkalized), making them raw. This cacao butter has not been refined/deodorised meaning that its amazing chocolate scent remains. There are a variety of uses for cacao butter but it is most commonly used to make chocolate and making homemade soap and moisturisers.

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.

There are different varieties of cacao, 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

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

*High street price is based on price in a well known high street health store. Price calculated as equivalent price per gram at time of writing and may change over time without us knowing. Where larger packs were not available on the high street total is calculated from purchasing multiple packs.

    Excellent!


  4. Good product

    Posted by Cholocate friend on 28th Oct 2016

    Very good cacao butter, fresh, smells and tastes good. On the packages outside is little bit too much powder/flour so you have to wipe it off, but the price is so good that its not big deal. Customer service is very good. Recommend and will buy more.

  6. Can't beat it

    Posted by Sam D on 4th May 2016

    it's as good if not better as the others if tried but at a much more affordable price. I now make twice as much chocolate as I used to! nice on skin too :)


  7. easy peasy home made, hand made chocolate!!

    Posted by Angie on 29th Mar 2016

    I decided to go the extra mile and give my boyfriend some home made chocolate, made with my own fair hands. 3 simple ingredients - this cocoa butter, raw cocoa powder and some honey - it's that simple!

    Melt the cocoa butter (100g) in a bowl over a pan of hot water till it's melted, then add in 6 tablespoons cocoa powder and 4 tablespoons of honey (or your choice of sweetner) then give it all a good stir up. Pour into fancy shaped ice cube trays and you're done! I added some chopped almonds to some, some stem ginger to others, and some chili powder to the rest for a fine selection of artisan chocolates. Put them in a nice little box and bow it up. I will definitely be making these again - they're absolutely delicious at a fraction of the price of shop bought posh chocolates and so much more special cause you've made them yourself!
