100% Chuncho Cacao Block (250 grams)

12.00

100% Chuncho cacao from the Quillabamba region of Peru. Sourced from the most wonderful, kind-hearted farmer who has been nurturing the land this cacao was grown on for over 40 years. His cacao trees are surrounded by over 20 varieties of citrus, as well as plantains, avocado, jack fruit, coca and dozens of other medicinal plants. He’s a true master when it comes to cacao, and is committed to bringing back the native cacao of the region, the Chuncho variety of beans.

I find the energy of this cacao to very much reflect the energy of the man who grew it - a beautiful balance of the strength of the masculine yet with the patience and tenderness of the feminine. My experience has been that it helps to support any areas that are out of balance in me.

Chuncho is named after the indigenous people who inhabited the area even before the arrival of the Incas. The local population has cultivated and used the cacao for centuries, thus leading people to suggest the plants may have evolved in the region. The Peruvian Ministry of Agriculture is now starting to catalogue the amazing genetic variety of chuncho cacao, as well as all Peruvian varietals.

Unlike cocoa powder, cacao paste includes cacao butter, a high-grade natural fat is the most effective carrier of cacao's medicinal benefits.

250 gram block. 

Comes with small book on how to prepare the cacao for ceremony.
