Organic Cacao Nibs are a delightful snack and are suitable for baking and desserts.
Cacao nibs add a lovely crunch to muffins, ice-cream or as a topping on your favourite dessert. They are also great to add to your favourite granola mix for breakfast or on top of a smoothie.
These cacao nibs are the original heirloom royal Criollo Cacao from Xoconusco in Mexico. By buying this organic raw chocolate you are supporting a sustainable project that is rescuing this original heirloom variety of cacao, which has been grown by the Mayans of Xoconusco since they originally domesticated the cacao tree over 3,000 years ago.
The certified organic indigenous growers use an age old system of permaculture, where the cacao trees are planted under the native forest canopy, along with other fruit trees, such as mango, avocado, papaya etc. All of these trees add to the fine multi-floral flavour of this exquisite cacao. The cacao beans are lightly roasted then separated into the husks, the nibs and the germs. At no stage in the processing does the temperature go above 45 degrees Celsius.
