Did you know?
The white deposits on the beans’ skin are not mould – this is natural residue from the soil the cocoa grows in, and is evidence of the soil conditions present in the growing area.
We source our organic cocoa beans with pulp from Indonesian and Mexico. Large parts of the region have been certified for organic cultivation and are worked by the farmers living there. The local farmers make a personal contribution each day towards maintaining the natural balance by growing crops in accordance with organic criteria.
The processing steps are carried out carefully by hand in extremely hygienic conditions. This ensures that the dried organic cocoa beans are of excellent quality and all important substances, vitamins and the full flavour are retained.
Cocoa beans are the seeds of the cocoa fruit that are fermented after harvesting. The bitter compounds are lost during fermentation. The beans then undergo a gentle drying process, during which their brown colour and flavour determining polyphenols develop. As they are not roasted, our raw, peeled (skinned) cocoa beans are of raw food quality. The beans are sorted by hand with the utmost care several times before being chopped.
The Cacao beans are pressure treated and controlled in Austria. During the pressure process, the combination of pressure and time ensures that the product is completely free of pests.
