A true raw food experience, these whole cacao beans (as well as our cacao nibs) offer the greatest nutritional value because they remain unprocessed. Their unique flavour profile is developed over a four-day fermentation period after which they're sun-dried and packaged so you can enjoy them in their all-natural state.
They come in their skins which are edible (like peanut skin). The skins can be easily removed by soaking them in water for two to three minutes and then the skins simply peel off.

How to Enjoy : These cacao beans can be eaten straight out of the bag, with or without the skin. Enjoy them with your cereal, yogurt, as part of your favourite fruit and nut mix (don't forget the goji!) or break out your nut grinder and turn them into a powder to add to your smoothies, nut milks, and heart-healthy chocolate dishes. Of course, you can always just break apart the bean into cacao nibs and create raw chocolate confections, too!
