Cacao Lab Ceremonial Cacao - 35oz
35 oz (1 kg) of ceremonial cacao made from 100% Ecuadorian Arriba Nacional Cacao by New York based Cacao Lab. One 35 oz block of ceremonial cacao yields approximately 30 servings.
Founded in 2016, Cacao Lab specializes in traditionally grown and processed ceremonial cacao from Guatemala and Ecuador.
Ceremonial Cacao is cultivated from ancient heirloom seeds that are 99% genetically different than their modified commercial counterparts. Furthermore, ceremonial cacao is only minimally processed, leaving the naturally occurring fats and nutrients intact.
Preparation: In this video, Cacao Lab co-founder Florencia shows how to properly prepare ceremonial cacao.
Attention: Cacao Lab does not add emulsifiers to their cacao. This may lead to the naturally occurring fats in cacao to separate from the solids and create white spots or a thin white layer on your cacao. This is called blooming and is normal. The properties of the cacao remain intact and its quality does not change. If your cacao melts during shipping, it’s totally fine. Simply pop your unopened cacao in the fridge for about an hour and it will be solid.
