Our Criollo cacao nibs come from Peruvian Amazon, the 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.
Here is what is known and why we love Raw Cacao Beans:
Dark chocolate is rich in many minerals. The cocoa in dark chocolate also contains antioxidants called flavonoids. Dark chocolate contains compounds with anti-inflammatory properties that may help reduce inflammation in the body.
