The best chocolate in the world is made from Peruvian cacao beans. The soil and climate of the Peruvian Amazon is ideal for the cultivation of cacao. OrganicCrops cacao beans are hand selected from mature heirloom Criollo and Forrestero trees that are harvested on small family farms in the Amazon Rainforest.
Cacao pods are harvested by hand. After removing the beans from the pods, the beans are fermented and dried in the sun.
In North America and Europe often referred as 100% unsweetened chocolate or baking chocolate, cacao paste is made from cacao beans that are fermented to perfection, toasted, husked, cleaned and finally ground and cold-pressed to create a fine cacao liquor.
The liquor is cooled and molded into blocks or wafers. The cacao mixture, and fermentation can be tailored to the specifications of the client to create a perfect balanced flavor profile.
