The Timeless Thai Cacao: Criollo & Forastero Nibs

Steeped in a rich tapestry of history, the Theobroma cacao tree, from which our Criollo and Forastero Cacao Nibs are derived, has ancient roots tracing back to the early Mesoamerican civilizations. Thailand, known for its fertile landscapes and sustainable agricultural practices, is the birthplace of our cacao nibs, promising an authentic flavor profile – a harmony between the subtly sweet Criollo and the robust and earthy Forastero.

These cacao nibs unfold an intricate dance of flavors – where the delicate sweetness of Criollo meets the deep, chocolaty undertones of Forastero. Perfect for culinary endeavors or direct consumption, they are a vegan, gluten-free, keto-friendly choice that aligns with bio-organic, regenerative farming practices. Their prebiotic properties make them an exceptional addition to a well-balanced diet.
