The Ten Major Species of Cacao

There are at least ten major sub-species of Theobroma Cacao currently in wide cultivation around the world. Of these, the most famous cacao genetic clusters include:

      • Criollo (This refers to ONLY Central American cacaos of which we grow many at our farm in Hawaii. Those claiming their product is from Ecuador, but of a criollo variety, do not understand cacao genetics and are misinformed; their product should not be trusted).
      • Upper Amazonian Forastero (A solid mix of genetics producing the best tasting cacao in the world. Arriba Nacional is the original cacao of Ecuador which has mixed with Upper Amazonian genetics. These together are the genetic source of our Cacao products.)
      • Trinitario (A mix of numerous cacao genetic groups that were made popular on the island of Trinidad.)

Of these, Upper Amazonian Foresteros with Arriba Nacional genetics are often the most highly prized for their flavour and mineral content and the tree’s overall beauty.

Why Choose Our Cacao Paste?

    • Derived from pure Ecuadorian Upper Amazonian Cacao Beans.
    • Grown in rich volcanic soil.
    • Our organic cacao trees are mature (typically decades old) and therefore produce a more mineral rich nib, powder and butter.
  • Guaranteed Purity
    • We only harvest the beans when they are fully mature and ripe.
  • Mycotoxin and Mold Free
    • Due to a purification system we developed over 15 years ago, we avoid: mycotoxins, mold, yeast and fungus. Our nibs are clean and therefore, devoid of the digestive and adrenal side effects of many (most) bean varieties.

The purity of our cacao, cacao powder and cacao butter create a product with a deep, intense, raw chocolate flavor and color.
