Cacao Seedling Matures Into Cacao Tree

The Seedlings are planted carefully. The organic farms in Peru provide a lot of sunlight for the seedlings to grown into mature trees. It takes 4-5 years before a cacao tree will flower. The trees beautiful flowers become the pods. Cacao pods take 4-5 months to grow, several weeks to ripen, and are cut from the tree with a sharp blade. About 300-600 seeds (10 pods) are required to produce around 1 kg of cacao.

The pods are hand picked and the beans go through a process of natural fermentation after they are picked. This process takes place before the beans are extracted from their shells and cold pressed.

The beans are then cold-pressed. Before the cacao beans are ground they are known as cacao nibs. Once the beans are carefully milled into a fine powder they are known as cacao powder. This particular process retains the cacao’s authentic, rich, bitter-toned flavor and high nutritional value, while the powder form allows for maximum digestion and absorption.

The best cacao powder I’ve ever tasted. It makes everything I make irresistibly delicious. I use it in everything from oatmeal to chia seed pudding, and for all my baking needs.

By David F. Salzi, January 24, 2015 – Great
Use it in my morning coffee. Great product.

By Mary Richardson, January 24, 2015 – I Think I Like It
I use this in my coconut fudge. I think I like it but may be bitter when you don’t use honey or sugar, like me. I need to figure out if it’s this or the Stevia power.

By Josh, January 23, 2015 – Mmmmm. Organic Cacao!
I prefer raw organic cacao. Smoother taste. It doesn’t turn everything dark brown like the commercial cocoa I buy in the store. But don’t let the color fool you and use too much.

By Moejoez, January 22, 2015 – This Is The Best Tasting Cacao Powder I’ve Ever Had
This is the best tasting powder I’ve ever had. It’s really delicious. My kids love it in their smoothies or as a hot chocolate with almond or coconut milk. I use it with coffee too and make my own Mocha’s. And to think I used to use the chocolate syrup stuff in the past! What a difference. You can taste the quality of this cacao powder.
