Pachamama Cacao FAQ

Pachamama Cacao only grows in the Peruvian Amazon rainforest and consists of 100% pure Cacao Chuncho beans. Thanks to its unique fermentation process the cacao has an excellent quality. In 2020, it even won the international bronze award in Paris. It is processed by hand with a lot of love, and is completely organic and vegan. The Chuncho beans cannot grow on plantations – they only grow and can be harvested once a year naturally. 

Pachamama Cacao has ecological, social and political dimensions at the same time: with your purchase you are helping to ensure that the primeval forest is no longer destroyed due to plantations, but can be maintained in its natural state instead, and that farmers can work in a well-organized and an responsible environment within their local communities. Even pre-Inca cultures made use of the Cacao Chuncho for healing transformations.

As the cacoa is melting whisk well.

Do not allow the milk/mixture to boil.

Sit and mindfully enjoy!
