This is the stage before it separates into cacao butter and cacao powder; this is the whole, unrefined raw bean.

Our organic Cacao Liquor comes from Peru and is guaranteed truly raw. They are in wafers so very easy to work with. Virtually all cacao products on the market which claim to be raw are made from the raw bean, but in the process of pressing them into the paste or liquor, they become heated. Ours is more crumbly than you may be used to, and the flavour is slightly more bitter. If you care about your foods being actually raw, as we do, then you will appreciate the difference in our product. 

Cacao liquor is made by pressing the whole cacao bean and heating it at very low temperatures until it forms a paste. This is the stage before it separates into cacao butter and cacao powder; this is the whole, unrefined raw bean.

The beans are carefully selected, then washed, disinfected, air-dried, de-husked, pulverized, ground, pressed, molded and tested for heavy metals before packing. 

Cacao liquor makes an extraordinarily chocolate product because you don't have to add a lot of extra fats to it as you would if you were making raw chocolate with cacao nibs or cacao powder. For an intense chocolate experience, just gently melt your cacao liquor and add your sweeteners and other foods of choice, to taste.

It is with regret that we are unable to share with you more information about this product. Various EU legislation forbids us (and all other food business operators) from claiming that these products can offer any possible health benefits. Many of our customers already know about these foods, and come back to us time and time again for their favourite items. We ask customers new and old to do your own research, and to trust Raw Living to provide you and your nearest and dearest with the best quality products at the lowest prices. Thank you for your understanding.

“It has a much more delicate flavour which I like. It is evidently more natural; it's obvious to me that heating brings out the chocolate flavour as it does when dry frying spices. It's like a completely different product that can be appreciated in its own right but not that intense hit of flavour. I think it has a really subtle smooth delicious taste, it's a lot lighter, much more sophisticated on the palate. “ Anna Middleton, raw chef and naturopath.

“Loved the cacao - like you said it is different but still delicious. “ Lauren Lovatt, raw chef and Plantlab teacher.
