Nib and Noble Organic Cacao Paste, also known as Cacao Liquor or Cacao Mass,  comes from harvesting the criollo beans from the regions of Peru.

Cacao Paste is produced by grinding Cacao nibs which are naturally fermented for 3-5 days in wooden containers (reaching a temperature of around 50C) then sun-dried.  The Cacao Nibs are then ground to a smooth, liquid state. Once solid, it becomes 100% pure bitter chocolate.

We grind our cacao paste to make it easier to use when making a drink, adding to smoothies, in baking or during your cacao ceremony! 

You can also find it as one of the ingredients in our Dark 65% hot chocolate to give it a real boost of chocolate cacao goodness.

Size: 200g
