Organic Cacao / Cocoa Butter
Why it's great quality
We use the King of Cacao - organic raw Criollo cacao beans - in our cacao powder, guaranteeing at least 75% content of this is rare, very high-quality aromatic bean, used by luxury chocolate brands like Valrhona, and artisan chocolate brands like Duffy’s and Forever Cacao. It’s considered a delicacy and prized for its superior flavour – the result of the bean’s higher fat content.
All our cacao products are 100% raw, pure cacao. Nothing added, nothing taken away. No additives or preservatives. No nasties.
Our cacao butter has not been refined and retains it's wonderful chocolatey aroma.
WHAT IT'S FOR
Quick melting and great tasting, cacao butter is a must-have for bakers and chocolate makers alike, and it’s also great in a raw chocolate shake for an indulgent treat.
Not just for eating, organic cacao butter is a natural, luxurious ingredient that can be used in body butters and soaps to hydrate and moisturise. It also has serious antioxidant benefits and a slightly chocolatey aroma. What’s not to love?
WHERE IT'S FROM
Our Criollo cacao beans are grown in the Peruvian Amazon, the spiritual home of cacao.
Enjoyed by locals long before they shared its secrets with the outside world, cacao and Peru have an intertwined history. Almost all of Peru’s cacao is grown by small holders who rely on it as their main source of income year-round. Most of the harvesting takes place between April and September and is called "la cosecha grande", which literally means "the big harvest" in Spanish. Their crop is sold to cooperatives who act as intermediaries. It's then processed in Peru before being trucked to Lima and exported to the UK.
Peruvian cacao is grown sustainably amongst trees or shrubs, using the Agroforestry land management system. This method has much less environmental impact than the fertiliser-heavy plantations that are common in West Africa and which cause so much deforestation.
