Botanical Name: Theobroma Cacao
Pure bitter chocolate (ground cacao beans)

Cacao Paste is produced by grinding the Cacao nibs to a smooth, liquid state. Cacao Paste is also known as Cacao Liquor, unsweetened chocolate, baking chocolate or bitter chocolate. In Canada and Europe, other names include Cocoa (Cacao) Mass and Cocoa Liquor. (Despite its name there is no alcohol present).

During the manufacturing process the cacao paste is liquefied and hence is sometimes called liquor. Once solidified, it becomes 100% pure bitter chocolate. This product is great for creating a wide variety of confectionary treats. Cacao Paste is great for manufacturing sweeter forms of chocolate by blending it with Cacao powder, Cacao butter and a sweetener of your choice such as Agave Syrup or Coconut Sugar.

Make your own artisan raw chocolate by blending Cacao Paste and Cacao Butter and sweetening with Agave Syrup or Coconut Sugar.

Our cacao is grown in its original habitat using sustainable farming practices and promoting favourable living conditions for farmers and their families. This cacao is cultivated in the original landscape of Mesoamerican civilizations and can be used in contemporary cacao Ceremonies.
