Nibs are raw chocolate in its pristine natural form, the broken up beans of the fruit of Peruvian heirloom cacao trees. Our beans are hand picked from Organic Heirloom Cacao trees in the Amazon basin of Peru and carefully dried under specific conditions to ensure the fermentation process occurs at temperatures below 46° – this careful process results in cacao beans with a magnificent flavor profile and high nutrition content. The beans are then hand peeled and crushed into nibs.
All of our products are independently lab tested before they are approved by our quality control department for export for wholesale to ensure we serve you only the highest quality and purity products available.
Our beans are hand selected from mature heirloom Criollo trees that are harvested on small family farms in the lush Amazon basin of Peru. These rare and sought after mature heritage trees yield premium Criollo Cacao with amazing flavor and nutrient content. The cultivation of our Premium Cacao promotes reforestation and preservation of the precious Amazon Rainforest by supplying locals with income dependent on the maintenance and protection of old growth trees. The cultivation of our cacao depends on old growth trees whose roots travel deep into the Amazon soil to pull out nutrients stored for centuries in the lively soil of the rainforest, making our product more mineral rich and sustainable than mass produced hybrid strains designed to maximize yield in less time. The fruit of these mature heirloom trees is picked and the seeds are air-dried with the pulp in small batches in our sterile facility where they are carefully monitored and managed during the fermentation process that gives our unique Premium Cacao an incredible flavor profile in their raw and unadulterated state.
