  • Manufacture Process

Cacao products are from a fair trade supplier in Peru, from the rich and fertile soils of South America. The Latin name Theobroma Cacao literally means food of the Gods. There is a great history of use of Cacao in South America and the beans were once valued so highly that they were used as currency.
After harvesting, the beans and pulp are piled together and fermented over several days in the ambient tropical temperature (below 118ÁF), a delicate process to ensure the tannins are removed – fermentation is key to the development of the classic aroma and taste of the powder. The beans are sundried, again below 118F, broken up into nibs and put through a winnower to separate them. They are stoneground for 10-12 hrs into an ultra-fine paste with the temperature kept below 118ÁF. This is pressed through a fine mesh retaining the cacao particles as a “cake” which is broken up and sifted into cacao powder
