Its all about chocolate and cocoa with a conscience.

You Can Now Say Your Chocolate Addiction…

Sharing a brilliant documentary…

Sharing a brilliant documentary short made by a couple of young, creative British chocolate makers and multimedia artists.

Filmed on site in the Marañon Canyon in 2016, they did some of the most innovative drone recording you will ever see. Enjoy!


I still can’t believe how anyone could ever prefer to ingest chemically made sweeteners…

I still can’t believe how anyone could ever prefer to ingest chemically made sweeteners like sucralose, aspartame and saccharin, used for sugar-free and zero-calorie products, instead of cane sugar, coconut sugar and panela, who are simply extracted from their plants and minimally processed 🌱🍚
The only reason I can give myself is that consumers don’t research any further. They associate claims like “zero-calories” and “sugar-free” with health choices, and that is all they need to know 👻💱
At the same time, God forbid companies make any effort to specify what they put in their stupid “healthier versions” in the place of sugar.
If you want to limit your amount of sugar in regards to eating chocolate, simply limit the quantity you ingest💁🍫
Go for 2 squares instead of 4. One bonbon instead of 3. Train your mind and become disciplined 🐘
It pays off way more than indulging in chocolate that tastes like crap and is full of chemicals.
What do YOU think of sugar-free chocolate? 👇

A vital step in quality control.

Reception of cacao en baba. A vital step in quality control. Each ‘cubeta’ holds aproximadamente 20kgs of beans which after being fermented ends up around 7kgs of dried beans. Being able to unify the fermenting and controlling the quality of reception of beans allows us to better develop the flavors and aromas.

Original Beans: “Only fixed prices are fair prices!

53 vind-ik-leuks,

Only fixed prices are fair prices! The prices for cocoa on the world market decline steadily. Also in Puerta Pulache in Peru, one of the three villages where the cocoa for our Piura Porcelana 75% comes from, the prices on local markets have decreased dramatically. But we guarantee all our farmers a permanently stable price. Thus, we currently pay those in Puerta Pulache the fourfold of the local market price. Thank you that you help us to keep the prices stable! Only by that, the farmers can earn a decent living.

The amazing thing about a Nacional plantation is that you have a history when you walk in one.

You can actually see the different clones, and the shape of the pods will tell you more or less where they were planted. Also, you can see the vegetation, the animals that are over there. It’s very magical. When you get more experience, by the shape of the fruit and the color, you will know that those beans are going to be more astringent, or more floral, or more fruity, or even nutty.” – Vicente Norero says of “reading the trees” on Episode 3. Please listen and share (link in bio).
