Chocolate is made from the seeds of a rainforest tree called Theobroma Cacao that only grows within 20 degrees of the equator. Theobroma means ‘elixir of the gods’ and anthropologists say that early inhabitants of the Americas had been drinking chocolate for at least a thousand years before Europeans discovered it.
Brightly colored cacao pods grow right from the trunk of the tree and are harvested by hand. The pods are filled with white pulp and beans that are scooped out, fermented, dried, roasted, and ground as they are turned into the chocolate that we know.
We use chocolate made with organic cacao in all of our products.
