All of our products are indeed cacao paste made from whole cacao beans. However we take our processing one step further to make your life easier.
1. We take WHOLE cacao beans and put them through a traditional stone grinder.
2. A paste comes out!
3. For our Signature Blend we add and mix in our 3 core ingredients (Panela, Chile, & Vanilla Beans) into the Paste.
4. Instead of drying our KAKAO Pure or KAKAO Signature Blend into a block form and selling it to you as a block, we place the broken up chunks of paste into a food processor and pulverize it into a powder to create a product that is easy for you to use in your every day life.
PLEASE NOTE: We do not alter, change, or omit any part of the cacao bean. We created this innovative process so that you don't have to do all the block chopping at home in your kitchen. With that said, it WILL melt back into a block if exposed to heat and/or left out in the sun.
