PERUVIAN CEREMONIAL GRADE CACAO
450g of Ceremonial grade cacao from a small, ethically and sustainably run farming co-operative in the Peruvian Andres. Powerful and delicious.
Why give this cacao a home?: 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
Ethically produced and sustainably sourced from a small farming co-operative in the Peruvian Andes who cultivate an ancient strain of the tree using permaculture principles. This cacao is one of the naturally sweetest ones I have tasted, making it so delicious to nibble raw and unnecessary for any sweetener to be added, except maybe a date or two for those who wanted added thickness or have a sweet tooth. I have been importing this delicious, heart-opening medicine for years. It is the same one you will have tried for those who have been to my ceremonies, and it is in my personal go-to.
