Single Estate Anamalai Cacao
With tasting notes ranging from raspberry to creamy caramel, this fruit-forward cacao packs a serious punch, not to mention lends the most sensuous velvety mouthfeel to everything it touches.
Minimally processed and non-alkalized, it is rich in all of cacao's naturally occurring nutrients and antioxidants, including gobs of healthy natural fats from all that cocoa butter.
This cacao is 100% raw, and without any added sugar.
Fully traceable, this award-winning cacao is organically and regeneratively grown by Harish Manoj Kumar & Karthikeyan Palaniswamy on their family estate at the base of the Western Ghats alongside their delicious nutmeg. Highlighting the seasonality of spice farming, each batch is grown in small quantities and harvested at peak potency and freshness.
Use this single-origin Anamalai cacao powder in everything from mole to mousse to brownies to the best cup of hot chocolate you've ever had.
Committed to transparency, each bag comes labeled with its harvest date.
