From a region in central Peru in the Junin Department, called Satipo. This cacao is agroforestry ’shade-grown’ under the shadow of many native fruits, with an organic canopy protecting crops like banana and papaya. Cacao naturally loves to grow under a forest canopy, so there is less stress on the tree, it promotes biodiversity, improves soil fertility and sequesters 30% more carbon than non-shade grown cacao. Our cacao is certified organic, direct from a few small artisanal farms in Peru. When you buy our cacao our farmer receives a significantly higher price than what they received previously from a broker, its better than fair – it’s profit sharing.
Flavor Profile: Fruity & buttery, with a floral and malty dark chocolate touch
Take 2-3 Tbsp of chips and add to 6-8 oz of hot water. Traditionally, cacao paste is only made with hot water and some herbs. You can definitely add nut milk or sweetener if you desire! Mix, sip & ceremony!
