100% pure Ecuadorian Arriba Nacional cacao beans, this chocolate is in a class of its own. Harvested from mature, wild trees at high elevation, these cacao trees have deep roots that draw in minerals from rich volcanic soil.

Produced in a true 'pod to powder' facility, the cacao nuts are sun-dried, and further processing is closely monitored to ensure that all the various chocolate products produced from these cacao beans remain 100% raw. Raw Living are one of a few select companies in the world to have access to this premium grade pure raw chocolate. We are confident you will appreciate the difference, both in flavour, texture, and in the heightened effects of the cacao experience.

Cacao is available as the whole bean, or in nibs, paste (liquor), butter, and powder.

Recommended serving size: 20-25g a day

From our man in the Ecuadorian jungle:

So these beans are the real deal Arriba Nacional. As far as processing goes, the beans are fermented then sundried naturally.  Temperature tests are run during these phases and I have been assured “the temperature of the cacao bean inside its skin never heats up over the  proverbial raw standard of 118f.”  The beans are then stone milled into nibs, then milled further to make paste, which is cold pressed into butter and powder. Again, supplier confirms that: “While monitoring the nibs stone milled into the micro fine paste and then the paste pressed into oil (butter) and cake (powder); the actual material being processed never surpasses the proverbial raw standard of 118f.”

“ I have no issues guaranteeing that the product is raw by the “raw foodist’s standards”. ”
