A mini version of our original pure cacao block, in a nice little 200g size. Perfect for dipping your toe in, the cacao.
Proudly sourcing single-origin, fairly-traded, organic certified cacao beans from Dominican Republic. These cacao beans have notes of peanuts and honey.
Pure cacao is a great alternative to coffee as it is high in Theobromine, a natural stimulant similar to caffeine, but without the jittery effects. Theobromine affects the cardiovascular system, whereas caffeine affects the nervous system, hence why many people get anxious and jumpy from drinking coffee.
Untempered means a white 'bloom' pattern will be on the cacao.
Tempering cacao means raising and lower the temperature so that the crystal formulation inside the chocolate is altered. We don't do this for the 100% cacao block, as it doesn't need it. When it's untempered it melts quicker - so it's perfect for hot cacao and baking.
