Production Process
At the farm the rare criollo cacao variety is regrown in a natural way from seed. The white cacao seeds are hand selected, sprouted, and when strong enough planted at the farm. Instead of grafting, the cacao grows in a natural way supporting natural diversity. This cacao is a natural mix of criollo and other varieties. The taste is softer and the effect is stronger, which is beautiful in a pure drink. The organic agroforestry methods used at the farm create a healthy natural environment where nature thrives. The diversity of plants and animals create a beautiful place to be and an example of how food can be grown.
