Ashaninka Ceremonial Cacao
What is Organic Cacao?
Scientific name: Theobroma Cacao
Cacao, also known as cocoa, is the most organic and purest form of raw chocolate there is available.
Uniquely original from our South American Amazon forests, we offer Ceremonial Cacao that comes directly from the Ashaninka tribe in Peru, a tribe that focuses in cultivating their cacao with the highest organic standards involving tradition, culture and quality.
The Cacao tree is originally from the Amazon in South America. Covering the countries of Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Brazil, they thrive high in the rivers of Napo, Putumayo and Caqueta. There is evidence indicating that Cacao has been cultivated and consumed in this area of the world since the 5th millennium BC by the different aboriginal civilisations, taking into account that because of the diversity in the ecosystems, it is very complex to cultivate through natural sources.
Our Cacao is perfect for chocolatiers and chocolate lovers who understand the value of origin and the importance of sustaining and maintaining traditional approaches to the making of - which is why our Ceremonial Cacao has countlessly won us positive reviews to show for it.
