450g of Ceremonial grade cacao from a small, ethically and sustainably run farming co-operative in the Peruvian Andres. Powerful and delicious.
It is what I use in all my ceremonies and has had great reviews. It is naturally one of the sweetest cacao beans you can find, meaning it is healthier as you need to add less sweetening ingredients, such as dates or plant syrups.
Why buy this Cacao: The Cacao is sourced from a Peruvian co-operative, which was founded in 1998 to preserve traditional methods of harvesting, working with small farmers to cultivate, process and market their products in accordance with the Soil Association’s organic standard. Their four founding principles are:
1) Quality over quantity
2) Supporting Andean mega-biodiversity, not homogenisation
3) Promoting organic methods of production
4) Fair income distribution among the people participating as suppliers, transformers and traders
5) Social responsibility, following the principles of Fair Trade
