We obtain our organic certified cacao beans from a plantation in Chazuta, Peru. This plantation belongs to our friends Oliver and Luz. With the support of local farmers, their family business invests a lot of time in improving the harvesting and creating unique fermentation and drying processes, always focusing on the bean’s taste profile. They expect a yearly harvest of only 6 tons of cacao, this makes it unique and special.

We love cacao and discovered that it can be used for more than just chocolate. Cacao is a superfood with many antioxidants, zinc and vitamins. For example, cacao shells contains vitamins A and C, fibre, pectin, theobromine, calcium and magnesium. Did you know that you can make an aromatic tea from cacao shells?
